Community Voices for World AIDS Day
December 1st, 2018 is the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day. The annual Community Voices event honours World AIDS Day, the first global health awareness day ever created by the World Health Organization. World AIDS Day is an opportunity to show support for people living with and affected by HIV and to pay tribute to those we have lost to AIDS-related illnesses. Every year, Calgary’s landmarks are illuminated in red to demonstrate solidarity and support for this international campaign.
This year, HIV Community Link presents Community Voices for World AIDS Day. This annual event brings Calgarians together in support and remembrance. On Friday, November 30th, from 6-9 pm, the Thompsons Restaurant in the Hyatt Regency downtown Calgary will become an amazing musical destination.
With the accompaniment of a live band, our partners at Front Row Centre will be providing a show-stopping musical theatre performance of select numbers from the Broadway musical, Rent. Our long-standing supporters at the Calgary Men’s Chorus will also be setting the tone for a fantastic evening with their uplifting choral talents. These entertainers will perform while guests enjoy a cash bar, silent auction and appetizers. The host will be Pam Rocker, activist, award-winning writer, spoken word poet, musician and speaker.
This year is extra special, as HIV Community Link is also celebrating 35 years of excellence in prevention services, support and advocacy in Calgary and Southeastern Alberta. Our mission is for wellness for individuals and communities affected by HIV and hepatitis C. With your support, we can continue to develop and implement innovative ways to achieve our vision of Empowering Choices, Engaging Communities, Ending Transmission.
Thank you to our supporters!
