The Center for Disease Control estimates that more than one million Americans currently are living with HIV and that there were about 43,000 new infections last year. In addition, effective new drug therapies are keeping people with HIV healthy longer and dramatically reducing the death rate. These two factors together have produced the result that more people than ever before are living with HIV/AIDS. In Travis County there are over 3,200 people living with HIV and AIDS. The numbers escalated in 2006 following Hurricane Katrina, after many HIV positive individuals relocated to Austin from the New Orleans.

The challenges of living with AIDS are formidable, but the one you and I can do something about is the financial one. So, please consider attending one of our parties, throw one of your own, volunteer, become a host, or corporate sponsor. Your participation can help save the life of a neighbor living in Central Texas.
