In September, AIDS Research Alliance (ARA) held its Summer Soirée for a Cure, a fundraiser supporting its HIV cure research. Guests traveled from far and wide to join the party at the home of Board member Cam Davis in Fremont Place, an elegant and secluded community near Hancock Park.

The event opened with a warm welcome from ARA’s newest Board member, LeVar Burton, who shared the organization’s recent achievements and future goals for AIDS research with the guests. The program continued with flamenco, inspiring speeches, and musical performances. Throughout the evening, guests mingled while enjoying delicious tapas and custom drinks. The band closed the Soirée as the sun set. The evening brought in financial support for AIDS Research Alliance’s research into prostratin, its promising HIV cure strategy.

AIDS Research Alliance is currently preparing for its World AIDS Day event, which will be held on November 30 at The Colburn School in Downtown Los Angeles. The community partners, as of September 18, are Kaiser Permanente, UCLA CARE Center, UCLA Vine Street, AIDS Institute CFAR, and LA Biomed. The event will be free and open to the general public. Please stay tuned for more information!
