31st Annual Ribbon Of Life® | June 25, 2017

"Ribbon of Life®” is an original production unlike any other in Las Vegas, featuring custom production numbers from the best singers, dancers and performers from premier shows on the Las Vegas Strip. Showcasing new acts and talent, each year’s Ribbon of Life audience is always surprised, thrilled and inspired by performances that are exclusive to the event. We are pleased to be returning to The Tropicana Las Vegas Hotel and Casino for our 2017 show.

Golden Rainbow has undergone some changes recently, including a new logo, an updated website and a complete overhaul of the vital services we provide; including the launch of a major capital campaign to establish additional housing for our clients in need. And in keeping with this exciting reimagining of the organization we have carried it through to our Ribbon of Life show as well. 

This year’s show is appropriately titled “Reimagined” and it will feature Billboard Top 40 hits reimagined for this one-day-only performance. The audiences can expect to hear and see their favorite classic songs performed in new and exciting ways.

Another exciting element for creators, performers, and audience members alike this year is that we will be bringing back live music to the show!  “Reimagined” will be under the direction of some new (and returning) show directors and will feature some of the newest and hottest performers from the strip.

This popular event is the primary source of funding for many of our programs and remains one of the largest and most unique shows of its kind in Nevada. This year’s show will be sure to sell out.

The Ribbon of Life Silent Auction will be back again this year featuring many exciting Las Vegas show tickets and travel packages along with special items donated by various local merchants. 

There will also be a reimagined Ribbon of Life After Party immediately following the show in the Tropicana’s Havana Room. This party provides attendees the opportunity to mix and mingle with the show performers and to watch additional acts and performances.

Party attendance is free to select VIP level Ribbon of Life ticket purchasers, however there are a limited number of tickets available to general audience ticket holders and the general public for an additional charge.

Come, enjoy the reimagined show and party while supporting our important mission!


Our 2017 Ribbon of Life Hosts


Sean McAllister

As co-host of MORE Access on FOX5, Sean McAllister has covered a decade of Las Vegas entertainment.  

Sean is excited to return as Ribbon of Life co-emcee for the third year and see the community he covers give back with their immense talent.

While you’ll hear a lot of Top 40 hits at Ribbon of Life this year, Sean will leave the singing to the cast because he can’t carry a tune!


EDIE is thrilled and honored to be hosting Golden Rainbow’s Ribbon of Life for the 7th time! As the Mistress of Sensuality, the emcee of Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity, she has performed over 4400 shows for close to 5 million people since she assumed the role 9 and a half years ago. Before that, EDIE was a fixture on the New York drag scene and on the cabaret circuit across the country. In 2006 her Broadway dream came true when she was cast opposite Cyndi Lauper and Alan Cumming in the Tony- nominated revival of The ThreePenney Opera at Studio 54. Other notable credits include the MTV VMAs, The Rosie O’Donnell Show, and Sex and the City.
