The Red House Party, Catholic Charities CYO’s annual fundraiser for its HIV/AIDS programs, raised a phenomenal $77,000 on Monday, July 23 at Catch restaurant in the Castro. This signature event has raised over $240,000 since 2004. Thank you to all friends and supporters who joined us for this long-awaited celebration.
The festive evening generated much-needed funds and marked the 21st anniversary of CCCYO’s monumental support to those living with HIV/AIDS. Dressed in ‘red chic’, guests dined on scrumptious seafood cuisine and mingled with a quintessentially Bay Area crowd, from media personality Donna Sachet to CCCYO Board President Cecilia Herbert. The lively gathering of friends and community leaders featured music, beverages and raffle—which included a weeklong stay for six in Mazatlan, tickets and backstage passes to Kathy Griffin’s next Bay Area performance, a video iPod, a $400 gift certificate to Mecca SF, and an exclusive private dinner for eight with chef Kerry Alan.
For their leadership and support, a most grateful “thank you” to event Co-Chairs Nanette Lee Miller, Robert Rybicki, and Nicholas Andrade as well as Presenting Sponsors Kristine and Jim Silva.
As a first responder to the epidemic in 1985, Catholic Charities CYO continues to be one of the largest HIV/AIDS service providers on the West Coast, helping to address the financial, medical and emotional stresses of those living with HIV or AIDS. The scope and reach of CCCYO’s HIV/AIDS services is profound considering that 25% of the HIV/AIDS population in San Francisco has received direct assistance from CCCYO. Specifically, CCCYO provides over 200,000 nights of housing for women, children, LGBT and other individuals living with HIV/AIDS this year and every single year since 1995, and has provided over $2 million to help offset health care costs.
