Horny Toad, maker of inspired lifestyle clothing and activewear, announces its partnership with “A Love Story,” a traveling theatrical fashion show benefiting the National Association of People with AIDS at the Belly Up in Aspen on April 3, 2012.

Inspired by the annual Telluride AIDS Benefit (TAB), www.aidsbenefit.org, in Telluride, CO, “A Love Story” is a traveling benefit theatrical fashion show that follows four couples through their journeys of love. Part modeling, part dance, this non-stop 60-minute story showcases donated fashions from Horny Toad, Karen Zambos, Autumn Teneyl, Onerary and many more. The show will be followed by a DJ dance party and trunk sale where attendees can purchase the fashions seen in the show. Proceeds from the event will be donated to the National Association of People With AIDS. Visit www.bellyup.com for tickets and additional info. Doors open at 7:00 pm, show starts at 8:00 pm.

“Our roots run deep with creative events and charitable functions,” says Blair Brown, Horny Toad marketing manager. “As a brand we are continuing to evolve our thinking in developing a community of like minds. Goals and values like those of the Telluride AIDS Benefit and ‘A Love Story’ are good examples of our own business ethos. This will be a runway show like no other, and The Belly Up is going to be a great venue for this event and fundraiser on April 3rd.”

“‘A Love Story’ is a community-driven event that brings people together to experience fashion and inspire the act of giving in a fun and creative setting,” says producer and director Katy Parnello. “Working with Telluride AIDS Benefit over the past four years, I've seen attendee's donate so much personal time and money to help people they have never and will never meet. In borrowing TAB's proven method of fundraising, I would like to help educate our communities about causes that need our attention, while raising funds for organizations that devote their resources to helping others.”

Since 1994, TAB has donated over $1,500,000 toward HIV/AIDS education, advocacy and NGOs. In 2011, TAB donated over $100,000 to five HIV/AIDS charities in Colorado and Africa including Western Colorado AIDS Project, Denver Children's Hospital Immunodeficiency Program, Brother Jeff's Community Health Initiative, Ethiopian Family Fund and The Manzini Youth Care Center in Manzini, Swaziland.
