MG_5590Denver will go FULL MONDO on Thursday, October 28th by joining Project Runway Season 8 contestant—Denver’s own Mondo Guerra—for a Mustache & Mondo-Look-Alike-themed Season Finale Party (presented by Fabric Lab) and “Jeans for Life” fundraiser at the Beauty Bar beginning at 6:00 PM. During the event, “final four” contestant Mondo will be teaming up with AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF), the nation’s largest nonprofit HIV/AIDS healthcare provider, to raise funds for HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention. Hundreds are expected to join Mondo at the Season Finale Party and are encouraged to bring jeans to donate to AHF’s “Jeans for Life” campaign. These donated jeans will be sold at AHF’s “Out of the Closet” Thrift Stores where 96 cents of each $1 earned goes directly to HIV/AIDS patient care and services in the U.S. and in 22 countries around the world. Raffle tickets for sweet door prices will be given to anyone who wears a mustache, dresses like Mondo or brings a pair of jeans to donate!

Earlier this month, Mondo moved Project Runway viewers when he incorporated ‘plus’ signs in his fabric and dress design, revealing to the judging panel—and the world—that he is HIV-positive.
