Thank you for supporting Splash of Red Cirque Gala on May 11
Our 7th Annual Splash of Red benefit was attended by approximately 250 guests, artists, donors and volunteers who helped HIV Community Link raise HIV awareness and $61,876 of critical funds for our prevention, education and support programs in Calgary and across Southeastern Alberta.
From aerialists, to live soul music, the Splash of Red Cirque Gala filled May 11th with an evening of entertainment, fundraising and dancing. Thanks to our supporters and friends at BassBus, Splash of Red offered performances from Jory Kinjo, ManUp, Trixtan Entertainment, and music by Vanilladisco. We also want to thank Shauna Starr, Krystal Starr and Sister Visa DeKline for their amazing drag performances. Our exclusive TV and radio partners were Global Calgary and 770 CHQR. Thank you to TD, our Presenting Sponsor, and to our Bronze Sponsors: Global Public Affairs, and Twisted Element. Special thanks to William Joseph Communications.
A special thank-you to our Splash of Red Volunteer Committee, who worked hard to provide an amazing experience, and to the artists, donors, patrons, volunteers and staff who helped make this event possible. We raised $17,308 from our silent and liveauctions, featuring work from local artists such as Anna Ostberg, Lisa Brawn, Pam Weber, Ella and Emilia Charette, Albert Decruyenaere, a live art piece by Rich Theroux, and some fantastic experiences. The event was supported by incredible wine donors.
We were pleased to have welcomed the Honourable Ric McIver, Minister of Transportation and Joe Ceci, MLA for Calgary Buffalo. We hope that you enjoyed Splash of Red as much as we did and we want to thank you for joining us!
