The fight against HIV/AIDS has to happen and with prevention and care it can. To prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS we have to educate people on how to prevent infection, and what better way then a community game of basketball?!

Owner Milan Rouge also gave a few words commending The Speakers Of Life for coming out and sharing their story with everyone. They spoke volumes in the gymnasium which helped lead the halftime dancers into action! The dancers practiced day and night to put on and outstanding show, which they did. Milano Madness was filled with surprises, you could find new releases of Milano Di Rouge gear being sold on sale for this special day! There was even a station where representatives from Bernie Saunders Campaign got individuals registered to vote. This years election is a very important one, so having a station like that was very helpful towards the election.

To end of the event The Milano team gave out basketballs to everyone who helped to bring the game to life and the winning teams. Milano Madness brought fun,family, fashion, education, and it was executed in style! If you weren’t thereit’s okay it looks as if we might be back next year!
