DOCTORS HOSPITAL CONTINUES ANNUAL CONTRIBUTION TO AIDS FOUNDATION
Dated of posted : 2010-11-12

DOCTORS HOSPITAL CONTINUES ANNUAL CONTRIBUTION TO AIDS FOUNDATION
 
 Promoting awareness of the number one killer in the Bahamas – HIV/AIDS - the Bahamas AIDS Foundation is once again soliciting the support of corporate sponsors to assist in awareness, prevention, treatment and reducing HIV/AIDS in the Bahamas. In conjunction with Colina Insurance Ltd., the annual Red Ribbon Ball is scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 20, 2010, in the Imperial Ballroom of the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island, under the theme “I am accepted”. The Ball promises to be another wonderful evening filled with prizes, gifts, fabulous entertainment and fine dining.
 
The ball gowns, tuxedos and dancing shoes are yet again being prepared with excitement, anticipating their turns and spins on the dance floor, all for a worthy cause but as arrangements begin for the upcoming Red Ribbon Ball, ignorance and silence continues to fuel the spread of HIV discouraging people from testing for HIV or disclosing their status to their partner, fueling the spread of the disease. 
 
The Red Ribbon Ball, the major fundraising event for The AIDS Foundation of The Bahamas and the Bahamas’ largest annual AIDS awareness event, raises funds to continuously fight HIV/AIDS in the Bahamas and its effects on society. The AIDS Foundation of the Bahamas and The AIDS Secretariat works tirelessly to halt the spread of HIV and eradicate HIV-related stigma and discrimination.
 
Previously held Balls and donations, have enabled the purchase and renovation of a house in the southern area of Nassau to be operated as a home for adolescents experiencing health challenges related to HIV/AIDS, the provision of medication to indigent HIV positive mothers and their babies, transportation of HIV positive children in the family islands to New providence for treatment and provide help and support to persons living with HIV/AIDS. As the fight continues so does the mounting costs incurred from such a community outreach and it is only with the help of corporate partners can those goals become reality.
 
Doctors Hospital recently continued its annual pledge by making a monetary donation to The AIDS Foundation of the Bahamas to assist with its work in the community. Continuing to share in the vision of the AIDS Foundation, to provide education and awareness, to assist in the prevention, treatment and cure and to provide support for people living with HIV/AIDS, the hospital has for a number of years been a patron of the AIDS Foundation of the Bahamas and strengthened its commitment with a recent check presentation to assist in the continuation of its excellent work for the benefit of the entire Bahamian community.
 
How can you help?   Just purchase a ticket for the ball and plan to attend! If you are not planning to attend the ball, you can still make a monetary donation to the Foundation, whatever you can afford is exactly the amount that they are in need of and don’t forget to proudly adorn your red ribbons. Wearing one is a sign that together we CAN stop the spread of HIV and end prejudice. Support the Bahamas AIDS Foundation.
 
To make a donation, for more information, or to purchase tickets, contact Colina Insurance at 396-2100.
