Halloween fundraisers help HIV organizations

Halloween HIV/AIDS fundraisers

Just in time for Halloween, two upcoming Atlanta events are scheduled to raise not just spirits, but also funds for local charities.

First up is Jerusalem House’s annual Carnevale, now in its 11th year. Jerusalem House is the city’s largest and oldest provider of housing for men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS. Slated for Oct. 22 at the Atlanta Marriott Marquis, Carnevale is the organization’s signature fundraiser.

“It is the biggest fundraiser that we produce ourselves for the agency,” says Alex Wan, development directory of Jerusalem House. “It is a costume party, with great music, food, drink and fun. All attendees will enjoy an open bar  — cocktails compliments of Grey Goose Vodka and wine provided by HobNob — a buffet, and dancing to music provided by DJ Mike Pope.”
