40th Anniversary

WOW! We are still thrilled by our community's fantastic turnout and expression of love for our 40th Anniversary Celebration on Saturday, November 12.

We laughed, drank, danced, sang, enjoyed some fantastic talent, reconnected with old friends, met new friends, listened with open hearts, and reflected on our history. We honored those who have contributed to our organization's legacy in the fight against HIV/AIDS in our community. There are many people to thank: our wonderful event attendees, longtime supporters, board members, AID Atlanta and AHF staff, and our community partners.

We’d like to give a special thank you to our incredible evening hosts: Jorge Estevez, Karyn Greer, Jocelyn Dorsey, and Oge Igbokwe. We’d also like to thank our outstanding performers: Atlanta Gay Men's Chorus (AGMChorus.org), Spoken Word by Oge Igbokwe, Solo medley by AID Atlanta Case Manager Sonja Herbert, and The Royal Band. We’d also like to thank our hardworking volunteers that helped us with the nitty gritty details of putting together a show-stopping event including @DecaturDeltas, Tom, Celeste, Ermis, Mitch, Reggie, Kelsey, Aaron, Tina, and Nadia.

Of course, we wouldn’t be able to have this spectacular event in the first place without our generous event sponsors! Thank you to AHF Pharmacy, BLACC - Black Leadership AIDS Crisis Coalition - Powered by AHF, Tito's Handmade Vodka, Coca-Cola, Southern Company Gas, Peach ATL, and TLC Rents Event Rentals & Production. Special shout out to Valiant Marketing for their help with all the printed materials!
