Telluride AIDS Benefit: Frankie Grande at Gala Fashion Show

Telluride AIDS Benefit: Frankie Grande at Gala Fashion Show

The Telluride AIDS Benefit continues to wave its “Fight.Fund.Educate” banner on high – and with good reason. With regard to HIV/AIDS prevention and treatment, today’s political environment is, at best, a giant question mark; at worst, toxic. On the scientific front, however, there is cause for optimism, though to date there is still no definitive cure.

TAB’s week of awareness education and fundraising to help support hundreds of individuals and families of all demographics living with HIV/AIDS begins February 20 with the Student Fashion Show. Events include the  sneak peek fashion show, 2/27;  AIDS Education Day (Telluride and Ridgway) 2/27 and 2/28; the gala fashion show, 2/29; wrap party, 2/29; free HIV testing at the Telluride Library, 2/29, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.; and the sample sale, 3/2. Go here for more, including tickets.
