Event description

Description

Completely unique and always a sell-out, Light in the Grove is attended by over 600 guests every year and was voted best LGBT gala in the Bay Area. Held on the eve of World AIDS Day, guests experience a moving candlelight reflection at the Circle of Friends ("the Heart of the Memorial”) then walk through our spectacularly-illuminated Redwood Grove to a warmly-lit banquet tent. Inside, they enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a buffet dinner with special musical and choreographed artistic performances.

This year’s Lifetime of Commitment Honoree is longtime AIDS activist and outgoing Board Chair, Michael Shriver. Mike has been deeply involved in HIV/AIDS advocacy, activism, program development, organizational development and public policy efforts at the local, statewide, national and international levels for more than 30 years.
