For the past 23 years, Access AIDS Care has sponsored Dinner Is Served, an annual fundraiser that has helped raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and the vital programs and services offered by the LGBT Center of Hampton Roads.
As successful as the event has been in past years, Access AIDS Care is revitalizing the event for 2016.
“The success of Dinner Is Served is determined by the number of party hosts who join us,” says SAndrew Roberts, Marketing and Events Manager for Access AIDS Care and the LGBT Center. “This year our goal is to enlist new hosts to join our past hosts and take the event to a new level.”
Dinner is Served hosts commit to having a fundraising gathering with friends and family. Past events have ranged from intimate cocktail parties to backyard barbecues to elaborate multi-course dinners.
This years’ Dinner is Served date is Saturday, October 29, although hosts can also hold party at any time during the year.
Party guests are encouraged to make a tax-deductible donation to Access AIDS Care. The organization provides hosts with marketing materials and personal invitations.
“No matter what form your party takes, celebrating and sharing our organization’s mission can make a real difference for many in our community,” said Roberts.
After individual parties on October 29, all hosts and guests are invited to “Trick Your Treat” thank you reception at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens for champagne, desserts and dancing.
“In keeping with the time of the year, we encourage guests to come in costume and close out the evening at a fun masquerade party,” said Roberts.
