SAN FRANCISCO—Pink & White Productions has teamed up to join the annual fundraiser AIDS Walk San Francisco, a 10-kilometer walk in Golden Gate Park on Sunday, July 20, that will benefit nearly 40 Bay Area AIDS service organizations offering diverse programs such as HIV testing and clinical care, to food and housing, and direct financial assistance. 2014 marks the first year Pink & White will participate as an official team, with a goal to raise $1,000.
Pink & White's team includes director Shine Louise Houston, marketing director Jiz Lee, photographer Tristan Crane, CrashPadSeries.com star Andre Shakti, as well as cast, crew, family, and friends. The company welcomes participants to join them, and will be walking the route with St. James Infirmary in support of sex workers' rights.
This year, Pink & White's participation in AIDS Walk SF makes a timely statement: California's "Condom Bill" AB 1576 is forcing its way through the Senate without regard for the adult industry's concerns and objections, ignorant of the fact that porn has seen zero on-set transmissions in over 10 years. Meanwhile, the new "face" of HIV is that of young, heterosexual African-American women: a 2010 CDC reports that Black women comprise 64 percent of new HIV infections in the USA. With this pertinent information, Pink & White acknowledges and aims to support organizations that are working effectively towards prevention and treatment for communities who are actually at risk and affected by HIV.
Join Pink & White by registering with the team to walk, or by donating today.
AIDS Walk San Francisco reports that last year’s event raised over $2.6 million. Since its inception in 1987, the event has raised more than $82 million for lifesaving HIV prevention, testing, and care programs and services, and has grown into the largest AIDS fundraising event in Northern California. AIDS Walk San Francisco has become a Bay Area tradition, bringing together tens of thousands of participants and volunteers; hundreds of corporate, community, and friends and family teams; and hundreds of thousands of donors from the Bay Area and across the country. This year’s event benefits Project Inform and over three dozen other Bay Area AIDS service organizations.
