The World of Red Ball
The World of Red Ball will create a safe space to reflect and celebrate those we have lost to HIV/AIDS as well as those continually fighting against the virus, while also rejuvenating a community that has been greatly impacted by HIV/AIDS.
Tickets are sold out for this event.
World AIDS Day is commemorated each year on December 1. It is an opportunity for every community to unite in the fight against HIV, show support for people living with HIV, and remember those who have died. We have commemorated this day for nearly 40 years, so the theme for this year is “Reflection. Celebration. Rejuvenation.”
