AIDS Gala Help Is On The Way

By Charlotte Robinson, August 15, 2014
The Richmond / Ermet AIDS Foundation is having its 20th star-studded AIDS benefit concert & gala "Help is on the Way" on Sunday August 24th at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Kenneth Henderson, Executive Director of the Richmond/Ermet AIDS Foundation stated, “People think the AIDS epidemic is over & we don't need to pay attention to it anymore. Events like "Help is on the Way" serve not only to raise funds for local AIDS services, but to remind people that there's still a need for funding them. More people are living with HIV & AIDS than ever before in history.” Some of the celebrities who will be performing include, Florence Henderson. Richard Chamberlain, Alex Newell, Paula West, Jason Brock, Maureen McGovern, Lisa Vroman, Jake Simpson, Valerie Pettiford, cast members from Motown: The Musical & more. Henderson added, “We're grateful that so many stars from stage, screen & the recording industry are willing to donate their time & talent to support our part in the fight against AIDS. We've made progress in that fight but we still don't have a cure yet & at best, it's still a few years away. Now is not the time to give up the ship.” Tickets start at $65 & proceeds will benefit 4 Bay Area AIDS service organizations, Abzyme Research Foundation, Aguilas, AIDS Legal Referral Panel (ALRP) & Positive Resource Center (PRC).
