    I'll wear a bright red polo shirt, embroidered with the name of the HIV/AIDS agency for which I volunteer. Also a red ribbon lapel pin, with their name printed on it. And since it's on a Tuesday, I'll go into the office that day for a few hours, and do something productive for HIV/AIDS. The next night is their annual holiday staff dinner, which I'm also attending.

    Red has become the color of AIDS. Here's an HIV/AIDS banquet I attended earlier this year, with red as the theme color.

    Just moments before we were seated for dinner. I bought one of these tables for my guests:

    My attorney (L) with the senior VP for this HIV/AIDS organization:

    The organization's CEO (R) with the Sheriff of Broward County, where it's located:

    The evening's theme was the Moulin Rouge, so naturally we had Can-Can dancers. And everything in red:

    I always wonder though, RV, if the money spent on the gala events for these fund-raising organizations might be better spent else where. Surely the donors to the cause would understand a massively scaled down dinner if it ment more of their donation would reach the intended cause.

    Then again, I suppose I'm jaded by our Imperial Court here. They hold a handful of fund raisers a year, and end up traveling to different states a few times a month for 'meetings' with the other Courts. icon_rolleyes.gif.

    Anywho, since we just had breast cancer awareness day at work I'm sure my bosses will let us do something for this. I may need to pick up some red ribbon and pins.

    An excellent point! The reality is, the big donors would not give tons of money if you didn't offer them these gala events. If you just went up to their door and said "Give us money" you would get nothing, or very little.

    Plus, these events are a public relations bonanza. We get all kinds of media coverage, that reaches far beyond the confines of that ball room. The name of Broward House, and the cause of HIV/AIDS, is seen by literally millions of people in South Florida because of an event like this.

    As my late mother used to say, it takes money to make money. Broward House, the non-profit HIV/AIDS organization that held this function, not only made money on the dinner itself, but will see new contributions coming in from donors newly introduced to us.

    Plus we honored local elected officials with awards. Politicians who recently turned back a hostile effort to cut back hundreds of thousands of public dollars for Broward House and AIDS recipients.

    An honoree & speaker was the newly-elected gay mayor of Broward County (county mayors are a Florida peculiarity), who claims to be the senior gay mayor in the entire United States, based on population, and our neighbor. I'm not sure if we could have snagged him and had media coverage if we held this function in a church basement.

    Think of it as a "holistic" approach. Yeah, it was extravagant. But it allowed us to make more money for AIDS patients than anything else we could have done. Such are the realities of fundraising.
