On November 30, the eve of World AIDS Day, the National AIDS Memorial Grove will hold its annual Light in The Grove gala fundraiser. This iconic event offers a nighttime journey through darkness and light, loss and hope. A sell-out the past three years, Light in the Grove offers a unique evening experience in Golden Gate Park; an outdoor, transparently-tented celebration with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and dinner, featuring music, performance, art and brilliantly evocative, surreal and technical displays of light.
This year's event co-chairs are the original three creators of Macy’s Passport: Larry Hashbarger, Laura Heffron and Patrick Smith, whose extraordinary talents raised $28 million for HIV/AIDS charities and research projects over twenty-seven years. Join us in honoring Tim Hanlon, president of Wells Fargo Foundation, who in the early days of the epidemic, dared to change the direction of corporate philanthropy to support countless AIDS-related organizations and causes in dire need of funding.
