Co-producers Scott Nevins and Mark Jones bring you “Sparkle: An All-Star Holiday Concert” (SparklePalmSprings.com) presented by Integrated Wealth Management at the Annenberg Theater inside the Palm Springs Art Museum.
This one-night only benefit performance for Desert AIDS Project will be on Wednesday, December 5th, 2012.

The performance begins at 7pm.
“It’s our third year and Sparkle at the Annenberg is a great way to kick off the holiday season,” says co-producer and Host / TV Personality Scott Nevins (TruTV’s The Smoking Gun Presents…) Nevins and co-producer Mark Jones (Co-owner, Brighthaus Marketing) are excited to bring the annual fundraiser for Desert AIDS Project back to the Annenberg theater.
“Through the support of Integrated Wealth Management as the presenting sponsor this year, we’re able to expand the show in some new and interesting ways,” says show co-producer Mark Jones. One addition to the 2012 show will be an off-site VIP After-Party at LULU California Bistro featuring a hosted bar and a chance for VIP Ticket holders to mingle with the performers and other guests. Hotel Sponsor Saguaro will provide shuttle service between the Annenberg Theater and the VIP Event at LULU California Bistro. Thanks also goes to our Media Sponsor LIVE Magazine.
