We invite you to join us at our Light in the Grove fundraising gala on November 30. Always a sell-out, Light in the Grove has been voted best LGBT Gala in the Bay Area. Held on the eve of World AIDS Day, guests experience a moving candlelight reflection in the Circle of Friends, the heart of the Memorial, then walk through our spectacularly-lit Redwood Grove to a beautiful banquet. Inside, guests enjoy cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and a buffet dinner with special musical and artistic performances.
Light in the Grove’s theme this year is 'Bending the Arc Towards Justice', capturing the spirit of hope, determination and resistance that has been at the foundation of the National AIDS Memorial—and our community’s response to the AIDS pandemic—since the beginning. We are proud to be honoring Senator Mark Leno, a longtime friend of the Memorial and tireless champion for civil rights, the LGBT community and HIV/AIDS organizations, and hope you will join us as we renew our commitment to the fight against AIDS and the battle for social justice.
