During these challenging economic times, people living with HIV/AIDS rely on HARC to help them with medical care, treatment and housing. As one client wrote,
"Throughout my struggle with HIV, HARC has been more. They provided transportation to and from doctors, food and shelter ... and most of all a voice when my own could not be heard."
HARC's clients have loved ones and family members who depend on them. Events like Dining for Dollars raise funds to ensure that people with HIV/AIDS continue to get the medical care and housing services they need. This exclusive event is HARC's largest fundraiser and aims to raise money to support local HIV/AIDS prevention and care services. Event tickets are $100 per person or $75 for a group of four or more.
