Friends has been in existence and evolving
for nearly 35 years. Soon after the onset of
the HIV epidemic, we dedicated ourselves to the
mission of working to ease the burden of this disease through the raising of
funds in support of direct care for those with HIV/AIDS and educational
programs to prevent infection. As the pandemic grew, thus did our scope; to help
“…where the need is greatest, until the crisis has passed.” Through our annual
Academy Awards Night Gala, we have raised over $8,690,000 to support more than
73 HIV/AIDS service organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Please join us and make a difference.
