Valued and invaluable 🌈 NEVER 🏳️🌈 BLEND 🌈 IN 🏳️🌈contributor and Give ‘em Hope administrator, Joe Mannetti, is hosting his first event since moving back to New York.
It is a fundraiser for AIDS Walk New York and the outreach and programs that support the people we love living with HIV/AIDS.
Joe worked, proudly so, as an HIV testing counselor on both the east and west coasts for years, so, this mission is near and dear to his heart, as it is to the bevy of fine performers and others who have stepped forward to “WALK the WALK” on March 24, 2018 (Saturday).
These include performer, tireless HIV/AIDS activist, and the AIDS Walk New York team leader of the CandyWrappers, Candy Samples (aka Will Harrell).
Candy’s motto is, “Use your powers for good.”
“The fight against HIV/AIDS is not over until an affordable vaccine and cure is readily available for all. Until that happens, we are all still living with HIV/AIDS.” – Joe Mannetti
