Team BAAC Walks in the 24th AIDS WALK SAN FRANCISCO on July 18th

AEA Member Brian Yates Sharber- BAAC Member Michael Gaffney

Organized by BAAC members Stephen Pawley and Phoebe Moyer, Team BAAC included AEA members, Equity Membership Candidates and special friends and ranked 151 out of approximately 1000 groups in fundraising, bringing in to date $2,270 in donations. Not bad for our first-ever participation in this fundraiser !

BAAC Team members met on a beautiful, warm, overcast San Francisco day and were given AEA signs donated by Stephen Pawley which identified Actors' Equity to the thousands of spectators lining the 6 mile route. Many a shout of "Go Actors' Equity" was heard from the crowd and senior member, Donald Cross was an inspiration to the entire team in his dedication. Yes , he and the entire team completed the six mile trek. Bravo !

Since 1987, AIDS Walk San Francisco is the largest AIDS fundraising event in Northern California and is a crucial source of funds for San Francisco AIDS Foundation (SFAF) and over 50 other local AIDS service organizations who benefit from the event. On Sunday more than 25,000 people journeyed through Golden Gate Park, sending a vibrant and vital message of commitment and hope.

Many Thanks to the Team BAAC walkers, those AEA Members assisting us to obtain a meeting table, for the AEA Members, EMC's and friends for helping us get the word out and finally to those folks who supported the walkers, the cause, and the memories of loved ones lost by your gracious donations.
