Twenty-five years ago, no one imagined HIV-positive people could live full, healthy loving lives. With success, however, comes a new risk – the risk of complacency. As HIV/AIDS drifts from the headlines, so too does the funding and vigorous action vital to defeat the virus.
In solidarity with World AIDS Day 2016, a call for open and equal access to treatment for everyone, we invite you to join us for two events: The Mark Dreiling Legacy Council Patrons Reception and the World AIDS Day Community Luncheon.
Established in 2013, The Mark Dreiling Legacy Council honors Mark’s incomparable community activism and those whose contributions exemplify his leadership and integrity.
We hope you’ll consider supporting World AIDS Day 2016 by making a contribution towards the event.
Members of the Mark Dreiling Legacy Council will be invited to the World AIDS Day Patron Party on Tuesday, November 29th, 5:30 to 7:30 pm, at the home of Ann and Tom Isenberg, 6433 Aberdeen Road, Mission Hills, KS and the World AIDS Day Community Luncheon on Wednesday, November 30th, 11:30 am to 1:00 pm at THE PARKWAY ROOM at the 1900 BUILDING, 1900 Shawnee Mission Parkway, Mission Woods, KS.
At the Community Luncheon, Greg Hugeback will be honored with the Mark Dreiling Award for Community Leadership for his effective and sustained volunteer work in our HIV/AIDS community. For over 25 years, Greg has covered virtually every facet of volunteering, including: providing architectural support and guidance for the Kansas City Free Health Clinic, now known as the Kansas City Care Clinic; serving as Co-Chair of AIDS WALK Kansas City; and founding Mosaic, an 18 year program bringing HIV/AIDS awareness to thousands of young people.
To ensure a seat at this special event, please make your contribution by Monday, November 21st. To make your gift or for a list of donor levels and benefits, please visit www.aidswalkevent.org or call (816) 931-0959.
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 2016. We cannot risk complacency. With your support, we can ensure Fair Treatment For All Now.
