The Philadelphia Center's premier event of the summer is the annual "Auction Against AIDS" party and fundraiser and it's just a few days away, coming up this Friday evening at Horseshoe Casino's Riverdome.

The theme of the auction this year is ¡Viva la Vida!, celebrating Latin life, art and culture. It promises to be an inspired night of color, food, music, dancing and fun...and all for the worthiest of causes. Guests will enjoy a live band, dancing, and fabulous auction items!

Original artwork, exotic travel packages, celebrity-autographed memorabilia, and other spectacular items will be up for bids. Delicious food and specialty beverages will be served at the event.

Tickets and event sponsorships are still available for this incredible evening. Just call The Philadelphia Center at 318 222-6633 or on the web at
