thank you to all who participated in NWGHAAD

Thank you to all of the vendors, attendees, and volunteers. This was a fantastic event, and it wouldn’t have been possible without all of you. Please go to the event page to see more in-depth updates, as well as photos from the event (which are also available on our FB page) [caveat: we are in the process of updating the page right now, so give us a little bit of time]

The amazing Planning Committee who dreamed up this event:

  • Traci Bivens from the Women’s Collaborative on HIV for getting us items for the “free store” and for working the event the entire day.
  • Mary Cabrera from Bienvenidos who got us 200 tote bags for the event
  • Carlos Catano from AIDS Healthcare Foundation provided all the food – and, when we ran out, managed to get even more so that everyone was able to eat
  • Michelle Enfield, Co-Chair of the HIV DATF, from Red Circle Project at APLA Health
  • Susan Forrest, Co-Chair of the HIV DATF, from Behavioral Health Services, Inc.
  • Alex Iliug from Tarzana Treatment Center
  • Terri Reynolds from AADAP, Inc., who got us (literally) a truck-full of items for the wildly successful “free store”
  • Roger Sediles from AIDS Health, who invited Mychele Sims to instruct the ZUMBA classes
  • Stuart Slechta from Tarzana Treatment Center
  • Ceri Zamora from the Commission on the Status of Women who handled all of the logistics with Jim Gilliam Park
