Sunday at the Hollywood Lutheran Church the public is invited to attend a memorial gala, featuring a wine reception, musical performances, an educational update on the state of HIV/AIDS in Los Angeles by the Medical Director of the Rand Schrader Health & Research Center, LA County’s largest HIV clinic, and a special guest speaker.
Hosted by Hollywood Remembers, the free community event commemorates World AIDS Day by honoring those who have lost the battle to AIDS and celebrating the survivors.
This year’s World AIDS Day event is particularly special because it is the fifth anniversary of Hollywood Remembers. The theme of this year’s event, ”Perfect Zero,” is a testament to the organization’s goals of zero new infections, zero stigma, and zero shame from HIV/AIDS.
A wine reception begins at 6 p.m, musical performances and a special guest speaker begins at 7p.m. The Hollywood Lutheran Church is located at 1733 N. New Hampshire Ave,
Los Angeles, CA 90027. Parking is onsight.
