After nearly 10 years away, Red Hot for the Cause is BACK! Dust off your pumps, give lady luck a call, and get ready to go “all in” for AIDS Alabama's marquee fundraising event featuring Blackjack, Texas Hold’em, Roulette, and Craps.


Proceeds from the event benefit the life-saving, life-affirming services of AIDS Alabama including HIV testing & treatment, PrEP, housing, transportation, emergency financial assistance, and so much more!


Red Hot for the Cause will feature live music from the Stephen McCollough Band, heavy hors d'oeuvres, a silent auction, gaming tables run by professional dealers, and a cash (or card) bar. Cocktail attire is encouraged.


  • When you arrive, you will receive $1,000.00 in play money (two $500.00 bills) at the check-in table (included with your ticekt). 

  • You will take the play money to any of the gaming tables in exchange for chips.

  • At completion of the gaming, you will trade in your chips for raffle tickets. This can be done at any of the gaming tables.

  • Dealers will give each guest 1 raffle ticket for every $500.00 they have in chips or play money.

  • You will take your double-sided raffle ticket to the raffle basket in front of the prize you desire.

  • There is a basket for each prize. You put your ticket(s) in the basket(s) in front of the prize(s) you are most interested in. A ticket is pulled from each basket and the number is read aloud to determine who wins each prize.






Tickets will also be available for sale at the door for $50/ea. Additional play money may also be purchased at the check-in table ($20 for $500 play money).

At the conclusion of gaming, patrons will cash in their chips in exchange for chances to win prizes - and those prizes could be YOURS! We will call out the donor of each prize from the podium so you will get ample recognition for your brand!
