World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day 2014

The United Nations has once again proclaimed “Getting to Zero” as the campaign theme of World AIDS Day 2014.  The focus of the campaign is on “zero” – zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths.  For over twenty years, the AIDS Service Foundation of Greater Kansas City has fostered grassroot action to eliminate the stigma, suffering and spread of HIV/AIDS in our community.

In observance of World AIDS Day 2014, we invite you to join us for several events enspirited by this drive to Think Globally, Act Locally and that of the Mark Dreiling Legacy Council, established last year to honor Mark’s incomparable community activism and those whose singular contributions exemplify his leadership and integrity.

All Patrons of the Mark Dreiling Legacy Council, will be invited to the World AIDS Day Patron’s Party on Wednesday, November 12th at the home of Kurt Knapstein, located at 5034 Sunset Dr, KCMO, the Community Luncheon and the World AIDS Day Reception.  

The World AIDS Day Community Luncheon will be held on Monday, December 1st, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at the Kauffman Foundation Conference Center, 4801 Rockhill Rd, KCMO.   As a highlight of the luncheon, we are pleased to announce that S. Sloane Simmons will receive the Mark Dreiling Award for Community Leadership for her decades-long undaunted and impassioned service to our fight against HIV/AIDS.

The World AIDS Day Community Reception will be held on Thursday, December 4th, 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the at the Roasterie Coffee factory, 1204 W 27th St, KCMO. At the reception, we will celebrate local volunteers, remember those who have fallen to the pandemic and affirm those afflicted and affected by HIV/AIDS in our hometown.

We thank you for your steadfast commitment to the mission of the AIDS Service Foundation and for your consideration of our request in support of World AIDS Day 2014.
