AIDS Arms would like to thank the 2012 Black Tie Dinner for their gift of $52,951 – our largest to date. These proceeds would not have been possible without the generous support of our volunteers, Table Captains, Table Sponsors and attendees, who designated AIDS Arms as their Black Tie Dinner beneficiary. AIDS Arms would also like to recognize the Black Tie Dinner Co-Chairs, committee members and volunteers whose compassion, commitment and hard work made for an exciting event and successful outcomes.
