Join us for an evening of celebration as we virtually commemorate AIDS United’s ten years of work to end the HIV epidemic. As part of the evening’s festivities, we will be honoring 10 distinguished leaders who have labored to end the epidemic. As a special treat, we will have a wine and cheese tasting, with optional advance ordering available to attendees so everyone can share in this special moment from the comfort of home. Help us commemorate 10 years of ending the HIV epidemic by joining us for this virtual celebration.


Your wine purchase automatically enters you into A TOAST TO TEN YEARS on Wednesday, Dec. 1, at 7:30 EST. You will get notifications and the event link via email with information on how to log into the virtual tasting. There is also an option to buy a ticket to the event without a wine or cheese purchase. Products are discounted for our event, and proceeds from the wine and cheese go directly to AIDS United — the more you order, the more we make!
