Debra "Pixie" Minghi - Winning is Everything!
Until There is a Cure…
Many of you know that I recently started working as the Director of Communications & Public Relations at Center On Halsted, the largest and most comprehensive LGBTQ community center in the Midwest. Every day ~ 1400 people come through our doors. In 1973, Center On Halsted (then called Gay Horizons) was started by a bold group of volunteers who decided they needed to do something to bring the community together. With the alarming outbreak of HIV/AIDS in the LGBTQ community in the 1980s, this same group of responded to provide essential supportive services. 44 years later and Center On Halsted now...
• Is open seven days a week for free HIV testing
• Administers 4,000 HIV tests both inside and outside Center On Halsted
• Runs the only HIV/AIDS and STD hotline in the State of Illinois
On October 1st, I will run my "booty" off in the AIDS Run/Walk at Solider Field to raise money for Center On Halsted's HIV/AIDS and STD programming. Your support is incredibly important considering inconsistent funding from the State of Illinois which has been without a budget for the past two years. Your donation allows people vulnerable to and living with HIV and AIDS to live with dignity and purpose.
Will you please help me help to help our friends and family?
