The Illuminations Project is a fund-raiser that isn't concerned with money. "It's more about [HIV/AIDS] awareness than a big fund-raiser," says IP Executive Producer Falcon Fuhr. This year the annual music and dance showcase features performances by Regina Dane, Clay Hardy, Hope Stone, City Ballet of Houston and Psophonia Dance, among others. The evening also includes the announcement of IP Award winners. "We have great nominees this year," says Fuhr. "We have John Nechman, who's an attorney that helps immigrants who are HIV-positive. There's also Eric Roland, who does a lot of community work, and we have John Szewczyk, who does a campout twice a year for people who have AIDS." 7:30 p.m. Hobby Center for the Performing Arts, 800 Bagby. For information, call 713-614-1360 or visit www.illuminationsproject.org. $35.
