Lansing, Michigan

The Lansing Area AIDS Network (LAAN) will host its Ninth Annual Red Ribbon Gala Auction and Dinner on Friday, November 8, 2013.  This year's event should be especially noteworthy as a lead in to the observance of World AIDS Day.  This signature event provides funding critical to the continuation of
programs and services to people living with HIV/AIDS and those at greatest risk for HIV infection throughout Central Michigan. 

The Red Ribbon Gala will take place again at the beautiful Radisson Hotel. The live and silent auctions
will include items donated from businesses, artisans and private donors throughout the area. Auction
items represent a wide variety of tastes and interests, including arts and entertainment, health and
wellness, leisure, travel, food, jewelry and home décor. Opportunities will also be available for 50/50
raffle participation and door prizes. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Lansing Area AIDS
Network (LAAN) and will help financially support the programs and services that LAAN provides, including direct assistance to individuals living with HIV and their families.

The Radisson Hotel is a beautiful facility located just steps away from the state capitol within the
Museum District. Night life abounds for those who would like to extend their evening at the Radisson or
at other venues. It should make for a spectacular evening.

The Lansing Area AIDS Network is a non-profit AIDS Service Organization located in Lansing, Michigan
which provides direct care and prevention services to 11 mid-Michigan counties. Since 1985, the Lansing Area AIDS Network has been the sole provider of HIV services in the Central Michigan region. The Red Ribbon Gala introduces World AIDS Day, an international observance designed to draw attention to the AIDS pandemic which is observed each year on December 1.   The AIDS pandemic is not over.  It continues to impact individuals and communities.  We ask you for your support as we continue the struggle against AIDS.  Until there is a cure we will continue the fight.
