The Bangles Headline AIDS Foundation Chicago 25th Anniversary Gala May 1st

The Best Party in Town Returns May 1
 to Raise Funds for Fight Against HIV/AIDs

After a four-year hiatus, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago’s (AFC) signature spring gala, Not Just Song and Dance, returns as one of the city’s most exclusive events with a special performance by the iconic music group, The Bangles. AFC revives the black-tie affair, held at the Hilton Chicago on May 1, to commemorate a significant milestone for the organization, 25 years as a driving force in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, dine on a delectable four-course dinner, have the opportunity to bid on extravagant packages during a silent auction and dance the night away, all while raising funds for AFC.

With a long list of hit songs, such as “Walk Like an Egyptian,” “Manic Monday,” and “Eternal Flame,” The Bangles made their mark in music history as one of the greatest all-female bands ever. In 1999, the group reunited to record the song “Get the Girl” for the comedy Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. Today, The Bangles continue to tour and perform all over the country as well as in Europe.

Marking its 25th anniversary this year, the AIDS Foundation of Chicago is a driving force in the worldwide fight against HIV/AIDS. Founded in 1985, by community activists and physicians, AFC collaborates with community organizations to develop and improve HIV/AIDS services; funds and coordinates prevention, care, and advocacy projects; and champions effective, compassionate HIV/AIDS policy.
