AIDS CARE OCEAN STATE'S 25th ANNIVERSARY GALA

On Saturday, May 2nd 2015 AIDS Care Ocean State is making history! In honor of our 25th Anniversary we’re throwing the party of the year, The Silver Lining, at the Providence Performing Arts Center in the grand two story lobby. Join us along with our friends, family, colleagues and supporters, as we come together and celebrate 25 years of passion, prevention, education. We’re turning the music up, hitting the dance floor and raising our glasses to all of the remarkable individuals who have supported the agency and our mission throughout the years.

PPAC will be transformed into a silver jubilee extravaganza- including a silver dance floor! So dress in your best festive silver attire and prepare yourself for a great show. Back by popular demand, we’re excited to announce Superchief Trio as our star performers for the night. The band features a unique combination of two-fisted piano, red hot trombone, blazing guitar, rock solid bass, powerful vocals and frenzied percussion antics! That’s not all; DJ PAULY will be playing all your favorite dance music throughout the night. 

Arrive hungry because we have an exquisite menu for the night provided by Just Ellen Catering. At 6pm we’re serving delicious passed hors d’oeuvres such as coconut shrimp and porcini mushroom cakes. Dinner will be served at 7pm including two pasta stations, with penne and cheese filled tortellini, as well as, two carving stations with boneless beef tenderloins and roasted turkey breast. But it doesn’t stop there; we’ll have a full mouth-watering desert buffet from the award winning SIN Desserts!

We have grown from a small, grass roots non-profit known as FACTS to the largest HIV/AIDS services agency in the state. Throughout the years our community has faced many challenges and earned many victories- the silver lining is the family we’ve created.  During the gala we will present the Sister Ann Keefe Humanitarian Award to Sister Joyce Flowers and also honor our 2014 Partners in Philanthropy, Father Raymond Malm, Dennis Delsignore and Paul Carpentier. 

The Silver Lining is dedicated in loving memory of one of our original Founding members, Sister Ann Keefe. Her unparalleled activism, spirit and dedication to the organization and our community continue to inspire us all, please join us in both celebration and honor of her life! 

Tickets to the 25th Anniversary Gala event are $100 and available right now at AIDSCAREOS.ORG. Join us for this incredible milestone and make history with us!
