Rochester’s White Party to Benefit AIDS Care
June 19, 2012
Rochester’s White Party, an inaugural fundraising event to benefit AIDS Care, will take place on Saturday, September 8, at the historic Century Club of Rochester located at 566 East Avenue. The event will begin at 6:30 PM and promises a variety of musical entertainment, food, drinks, and several exciting surprises.
The event-planning committee is comprised of volunteers and is being chaired by Lisa Cove, a longtime supporter of AIDS Care and friend of the organization’s co-founder, William M. Valenti, MD. “We want to create a signature fundraising event, embraced and recognized by the greater Rochester community, so that patients at AIDS Care can continue to receive high-quality care in a welcoming environment,” says Cove. The theme has been an international success in cities such as Paris, Montreal, Pattaya, New York and Palm Springs. According to Cove, “We want to bring this world-renowned theme to Rochester. The color represents purity, beauty, and elegance. It also makes everyone look beautiful!”
Dr. Valenti, co-founder, senior vice president of medical affairs, and interim chief medical officer, will serve as the event’s honorary chair. “We are very excited to partner with Lisa Cove and the committee to help raise awareness about HIV/AIDS,” says Valenti. “HIV has not gone away. AIDS Care provides the comprehensive medical care, support, and treatment that patients need to live healthier lives while coping with the many challenges of this chronic condition.” Funds raised at this event will benefit AIDS Care’s research program.
Guests should plan on wearing their best white attire for this elegant “evening dressed in white.” Tickets are available for purchase and there is tiered pricing (prices will rise as the event gets closer). Event sponsorships and V.I.P. tickets are also available.
