“I love working on Sparkle every year” says Nevins, “We bring together a group of amazingly talented artists who might never share the same stage together, especially out in the desert. I love when people tell me that Sparkle has become one of their favorite holiday traditions - it's definitely one of mine!” Previous shows have brought together such talents as Lorna Luft, Carol Channing, JoAnne Worley, Bobbie Eakes and Wilson Cruz. “Last year’s show at the Annenberg was sold out, and with this being our third year, Sparkle has quickly become a part of the holiday tradition in Palm Springs,” says Jones. The evening is made possible through the generosity of Presenting Sponsor Integrated Wealth Management, VIP Event Sponsor LULU California Bistro, Hotel Sponsor The Saguaro and Media Sponsor LIVE Magazine, as well as other area businesses. The event includes a silent auction with incredible items offered to the highest bidder, with all of the proceeds going directly to Desert AIDS Project.
