Each person tested received one ticket to a star-studded concert JULY 11th featuring PLIES, PLEASURE P, DAY 26, MELANIE FIONA, BOBBY VALENTINO, LETOYA LUCKETT, TWISTA, YUNG PROBLEMZ, YUNG L.A., G.T., GORILLA ZOE, BUN B and GINUWINE. Only those tested for HIV and receiving their results will be issued a ticket for admittance.
