Desert AIDS Project Everyday Heroes, Dec 1st

On the evening of Tuesday, December 1st, D.A.P. will host its 2nd Annual Everyday Heroes event at the Camelot Theatres, to honor the volunteer efforts of “everyday people doing extraordinary things” for the clients of Desert AIDS Project. As an evening of heartwarming stories of people who might not cross the stage of a black-tie gala – but are highly deserving of accolades nonetheless, the evening begins with a champagne reception at 5:30. The awards program and entertainment by Nita Whitaker will begin at 6:30, followed by a cocktail reception with hors d’oeuvres, compliments of Lulu California Bistro. Tickets are available online at


This year’s Everyday Heroes include Bella Da Ball, local icon, social ambassador, and supporter of many local nonprofits; Kenny Jervis & Michael Crisp, who live both locally and in Las Vegas where they own a popular nightclub and have raised significant sums for D.A.P. through popular parties; Margie Lobley, a long-time volunteer with D.A.P., including 20 years of service at D.A.P.’s monthly Farmers Market through the Linsky Food Depot where clients receive fresh produce and other items to help stretch their food budget; and Nicholas Snow, D.A.P. client and long-time HIV activist, author, and journalist who is marking World AIDS Day by providing a free, worldwide e-book download of his Life Positive: A Journey to the Center of My Heart at
