Here’s how to ‘Party with Impact’
Annual fundraising party celebrates client-centered care organization Positive Impact Health Centers
By Mike Fleming
Hard to believe it’s been more than two-and-a-half decades that some gay caregiving professionals noticed that even as improvement in medical care came, no one was treating the mental affects of HIV and AIDS. Enter Positive Impact Health Centers, which has been serving Atlanta’s HIV-positive population ever since.
Ultimately expanding to help eliminate the risk of HIV transmission, the organization features an assortment of programs including community outreach, HIV and STD testing, counseling for groups and individuals, prevention and education services, substance abuse treatment, internship programs and empowerment groups for gay and bisexual men, among others.
In 2015, Positive Impact and another long-standing AIDS service organization, AID Gwinnett, became one. The merger allowed Positive Impact Health Centers to soar to new heights and access an even broader database, all solely catering to its core mission to help local people with HIV.
To honor the organization’s influence on the community, you are cordially invited along with allies, friends and loved ones to celebrate the past, present and future of Positive Impact Health Centers on Saturday, Sept. 23, at the Millennium Gate Museum.
Party With Impact is the annual fundraising event with food, provided by Proof of the Pudding from Street Taco Bar, Dixie Slider Bar, and more, as well as an open bar, and music.
While you mix and mingle, the first floor of the museum will be open with exhibits on Georgia’s History & Families. Main Event tickets are $100 per person, but if you’re able, spring for the Host Committee tickets. Set at $200 for individuals and $350 for couples, the host tickets include a private reception on the 5th and 6th floor of the museum, which will be closed to other guests. All of the proceeds go to the care of people affected by HIV in metro Atlanta.
Party With Impact takes place at the Millennium Gate Museum, 395 17th Street NW, on Sunday, Sept. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
