Each year, Nebraska AIDS Project hosts an annual gala, Night of a Thousand Stars.
Proceeds from Night Of A Thousand Stars supports NAP’s continued efforts in the Midwest through the provision of supportive services to people living with HIV and AIDS, HIV and STI prevention education, HIV and STI testing, and advocacy on behalf of people living with HIV and AIDS. This is the agency’s largest annual fundraiser, and a party every year!
Nebraska AIDS Project was founded in a time of great uncertainty – at a time when the President refused to even utter the word “AIDS”. No one knew how things would play out, but courageous people knew that, in the face of impossible odds, they had to do something. It’s because of those people that we have places like NAP today. They made what seemed impossible possible.
Every year, Nebraska AIDS Project recognizes a community member who has gone above and beyond to advocate and educate about HIV and AIDS in our community.
