We will also be announcing the winner of this year's Kile Ozier Founders Award. The Kile Ozier Founders Award, named in honor of the founder of Academy of Friends, is presented annually by the Board of Directors of Academy of Friends to honor those who exemplify the spirit of volunteerism in the fight against HIV/AIDS. The winner designates a Bay Area HIV/AIDS agency to receive a $2,500 Academy of Friends grant.
Program for the evening:
6:30 PM - Cocktails
7:00 PM - Introductions/Check Presentation

8:30 PM - Event concludes
Hors d'oeuvres will be provided along with a selection of wines and cocktails.
This event is open to the Underwriters, Corporate Sponsors and Volunteers who supported Academy of Friends in our 2013 Gala Season, without whose support this would not be possible. Representatives from each of our beneficiaries, AIDS Community Leaders and the press are also invited to join us.
Everyone is welcome.
We would hope that you will consider supporting Academy of Friends and our mission to continue raising money for HIV/AIDS Services for this community as long as the need endures. We have distributed over $8.6 million to HIV/AIDS Services since the beginning of the pandemic.
When & Where
Academy of Friends
Academy of Friends has been in existence and evolving for nearly 34 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 $8.6 million to support more than 72 HIV/AIDS service organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Please join us and make a difference.
