Thank You for Supporting the 2022 Allies Ball!

Because of you, we raised more than $170,000 in donations and more than $30,000 in goods and services to provide medical and mental health care, food, housing assistance and other critical services for those living with or at risk of HIV/AIDS. 

The Allies Ball is the largest fundraising activity for Allies for Health + Wellbeing, and its success this year was more important than ever. Due to significant cost increases – especially the HIV/AIDS medications we provide through our pharmacy – Allies serves more individuals with far fewer financial resources.  

Through sponsorships, donations and ticket sales, YOU helped us surpass our fundraising goal. Our text-to-give appeal, generously matched by the Scott Noxon Foundation, raised $7,218.25!

You also allowed us to honor Alan Jones with the 2022 Kerry Stoner Award, and you helped us shine a light on the work of our inaugural class of Bright Young People.
