World AIDS Day – Richardson


World AIDS Day - Richardson“The Night of a Thousand Names”

Our event this year will be held at NOAH’S the beautiful event venue located at 2151 N. Greenville Ave., Richardson TX 75082.

This World AIDS Day our goal is to bring together cross cultural communities to remind them about the history of AIDS, the continuing struggle it has had on people from all walks of life, both nationally and globally and strike a chord to the hope in getting life saving treatment and care that stops the spread of HIV/AIDS.

In an effort to build on the community response to the increasing number of new HIV infections in the North Texas region, we respectfully seek your support, and invite you and/or your organization to review the included Sponsorship Form and join us in our effort and become a sponsor of this “special event”.

Continuing our tradition of recognizing organizations and community leaders who have made a significant contribution to the importance of HIV/AIDS prevention and education, C.U.R.E. will honor and bring the spotlight to The Names Project Foundation, Dr. Steven Pounders, and Dr. Louis Sloan.

Established in 1987, The NAMES Project Foundation Is the international, non-governmental, 501(c)(3) organization that is the custodian of The AIDS Memorial Quilt. and its associated document and media archive. Dr. Pounders specializes in Internal Medicine and Infectious Diseases and is distinguished in his treatment of HIV/AIDS patients. Dr. Sloan is a pioneer in the DFW Metroplex who has treated the disease since the beginning, He has been a leader in research and clinical trials, and championed tirelessly to educate people on the importance of HIV prevention.

Every year on World AIDS Day we invite members of the community to present and dedicate a panel to the AIDS Memorial Quilt in remembrance of a loved one that has passed.

GDMAF, the Greg Dollgener Memorial AIDS Fund (GDMAF), is a 501c3 organization founded in 1996 with a mission to provide emergency financial assistance to people living with HIV/AIDS and to those who are unable to receive social services assistance, after all other HIV and AIDS ASO have exhausted their funds. GDMAF is the last resort of hope for many in emergency needs.

David Hearn stated that “GDMAF is honored to be a beneficiary of the Dallas Bears. Their 19 years of service to the Dallas Community has been a major reason that people’s lives are better in the DFW area. Without their support organizations like GDMAF would have reduced funds to assist clients in critical daily needs.”

Wayne Davis , President of the Dallas Bears stated “Tonight the Dallas Bears presented their Charitable Donations to the following organizations: AIDS Interfaith Network – $1,100; AIDS Services of Dallas – $4,300; Sharon St. Cyr Fund – $1,500; AIDS Outreach Center of Ft.
