AMAZING Annual Holiday Gala Raises Funds and Awareness for the AIDS Foundation of Chicago
Chicagoans are invited to treat themselves to an evening of delectable indulgence with delicacies for all palates at the 15th annual World of Chocolate winter gala on Thursday, Dec. 1, World AIDS Day, presented by the AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) at Chicago’s popular new event space, Revel Fulton Market. Eyes and taste buds will burst with sensory overload from elaborate décor and sweet treats from 22 of Chicago’s most noteworthy chocolatiers, restaurants and caterers.
From sweet chocolate creations to savory bites, decadence of every flavor will be available alongside extravagant décor by Kehoe Designs. Celebrity judges will announce the evening’s best creations. Guests can also enjoy a light buffet, specialty cocktails, open bar, music, a raffle and punchboard with spectacular prizes.
Taking place on World AIDS Day, this year’s signature celebration will commemorate the worldwide progress the HIV/AIDS community has made to end the epidemic. The movement has observed the Dec. 1 date as a global effort to increase public awareness about the virus, while promoting HIV related programming and dialogue. Launched in 1988, the global event followed an international summit among health leaders who saw the need for a larger discussion on HIV/AIDS in every country.
Funds raised through World of Chocolate support AFC’s work to end new HIV infections in Chicago and beyond. Proceeds from the event will:
- Support efforts to house 1,100 Chicagoans who are experiencing homelessness.
- Enable more than 7,000 clients to receive case management services.
- Fund trainings for hundreds of medical professionals about PrEP.
- Empower us to provide policy leadership in state and federal health equity matters
