Golden Rainbow’s annual benefit production, Ribbon of Life, will return with a “Holiday Spectacular” theme to the Tropicana Theater at Tropicana Las Vegas on Sunday, Dec. 3.
Tickets are on sale now at goldenrainbow.org/ribbonoflife.
Guests of all ages are invited to ring in the holiday season at Golden Rainbow’s 35th Annual Ribbon of Life Holiday Spectacular, featuring reimagined holiday classics from singers, dancers, and performers from nearly every major show on the Strip.
Drag artist EDIE, known for her leading role in Cirque du Soleil’s “Zumanity” and “Faaabulous! The Show,” and Sean McAllister return as hosts.

About Golden Rainbow
Golden Rainbow is a non-profit organization co-founded in 1987 by Bree Burgess and Peter Todd to provide housing and financial assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS in Southern Nevada.
The organization was established by members of the Las Vegas entertainment industry who saw the need to provide housing for people with AIDS when one of their fellow performers was forced to live and eventually die in his family’s garage.
Motivated by their cast mates and friends suddenly becoming ill and dying in record numbers, show performers from all over the Strip organized a benefit show to raise funds to provide shelter for those in most need.
Originally called “Golden Rainbow,” the show premiered on July 11, 1987, in the Ziegfeld Theatre at Bally’s, and is now known as the “Ribbon of Life” that remains one of the largest and most successful HIV/AIDS annual fundraisers in Nevada.
In addition, the organization hosts its annual “Dining Out for Life” event, partnering with local restaurants to fundraise for their critically needed service. For more information, visit goldenrainbow.org.
