Hickory – For fans of our annual Winter Gala and Uncorked wine tasting and silent auction, this year there is a socially-distanced twist. ALFA is continuing their 20+ year tradition of kicking off the holiday season with their first-ever Red Ribbon Gala on Sunday, November 8th at 6:00 pm. Tickets are $100.00 and include a take-out dinner for two from Café Rule, which will include a main course (chicken or vegetarian option), salad, side, and dessert. Also included in tickets is a bottle of Jones von Drehle Vineyards wine.

Guests will also be treated to a fun live streaming event hosted by DeVida including the presentation of the 2020 Mitchell Gold and Bob Williams Legacy Award, chatting up participants as they go through the “gourmet drive-through,” and a few surprises along the way! Money raised will be used to support ALFA’s vision: Eliminating stigma and barriers to care to create a future free of HIV.

“Every year ALFA friends and family look forward to celebrating the holiday season together at ALFA’s Winter Gala. ALFA decided to keep this long-standing tradition, but reinvent it for 2020. We hope that our guests will enjoy the opportunity to connect in a safe, socially distanced way.” – Chris Kliesch, CEO
