The Red Pump Project is a national initiative to raise awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. The mission it to promote HIV prevention through education, and open dialogue about the issues that surround sexual and reproductive health.
In an effort to assist The Red Pump Project with its incredible mission, JSW Media Group along with Chef Jay Jones of Chateau Noir, LLC, will present The Red Pump/Red Tie Affair at The Harvey B. Gantt Center on December 1, 2011, which is World AIDS Day. This year's gala will be a fashion-themed cocktail party, serving heavy hors d'oeuvres, complete with live music and entertainment, a silent auction and a "Sexy, Stylish and Safe" runway show. We will honor prominent leaders in the community in their individual efforts to raise HIV/AIDS awareness and education with the "Red Pump" Award.
You are invited to take part in supporting this gala for a great cause. The AIDS epidemic is alive and well, this event is our way of helping to get the right information out there for the public and to raise awareness. We have the power to change our world; let's join together and do it.
When & Where
The Red Pump Project - Charlotte
The Red Pump Project™ raises awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls. Our mission is to promote HIV prevention through education, and open dialogue about the issues that surround sexual and reproductive health.
Founded in March 2009 by Luvvie Ajayi and Karyn Watkins, Red Pump believes that if HIV affects one, it affects us all. We use the red shoe as a symbol of empowerment to represent the strength and courage of women infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. The incorporation of fashion into the message of HIV prevention is our contribution as we hope to show that Awareness is Always in Style!™
