Event Sponsorship

ACT has many opportunities for sponsorship at any one of our four annual events, which include Red Carpet Experience, Art for AIDS, AIDS Walk, and WE CAN Cook. Our sponsorship needs include restaurants to provide food at events, wine/liquor stores to provide beverages, retailers of all kinds to provide items for our auctions and raffles, and corporate donors to provide direct financial support.

We also need volunteers for a variety of tasks related to our events including planning, promotions, and event logistics. For more information on sponsorship or volunteer opportunites please contact Wendy Graveley, Development Director at
