“The event includes a silent auction with donations of local art, fine wines, antiques, get away vacations and jewelry. Money raised from this event will go directly to helping finance WNCAP services, including HIV prevention and education, harm reduction, and case management services to those living with the disease across the 18 counties of Western North Carolina.”
Exactly right. Qnews also quotes WNCAP Community Resource Coordinator Christopher Winebrenner with respect to Gala Chair David Gantt: “Where some may turn a deaf ear to the problem of HIV infection in our community, David Gantt has made no qualms about publicly advocating for HIV prevention education, testing and medical case management care for men, women, and children living with HIV/AIDS. He has supported WNCAP and the work we do for years and is a terrific example of an individual using their voice to confront stigma and ignorance.”
The 29th annual Raise Your Hand Auction & Gala will kick off on Saturday, September 23rd, at 6:00 PM at the Asheville Event Centre – 291 Sweeten Creek Road, in Asheville, NC. Tickets are selling out fast but can still be purchased online or by calling the WNCAP office at (828) 252-7489.
