The Philadelphia Center Presents "Diamonds and Pearls." The 30th Annual Auction Against AIDS at Sam’s Town Hotel and Casino in Shreveport on Saturday, August 17 at 6 p.m. Tickets are $50 in advance.
Come to enjoy a night of fun along with local art, food, silent auction items, and contests that you will not want to miss. During the silent auction, attendees can discover the talent of local artists and products and services of businesses in our community.
Various raffles and contests ensure that everyone has a chance at some truly amazing prizes. Once again, you can purchase a couple of flashing light rings for a gift certificate from one of our local jewelry stores. And, of course we will have Central Station’s “Barrel of Booze,” which is our popular barrel of wine, liquor, and beer raffle.
The Philadelphia Center was developed in the spring of 1990 as concerned citizens responded to the HIV/AIDS epidemic as it spread into the Shreveport area of Louisiana. Our mission is to Empower those living with HIV, to Eliminate new HIV transmissions, and to Enhance community health. Funds from the Annual Auction Against AIDS provide general and programmatic support for programs such as our Mobile Testing Unit and Mercy Center, our residential facility for people living with HIV/AIDS.
