The Alliance For Positive Change (previous name AIDS Service Center NYC) honoured New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and U.S. Olympic Diving Gold Medalist Greg Louganis, along with attorney Joseph Saltarelli of Huntons & Willams on November 29thh, 2016 at the Tribeca 360, receiving the annual ChangeMaker Awards. Guests enjoyed a walk-around tasting of delicious bites donated by Fat Witch Bakery, Freud, Lucca, Pampano, Penelope, Rosemary’s, Sazon Perez, Speedy Romeo, and Staghorn Steak House. Plus an open bar, an amazing silent auction and an awesome live auction. All proceeds will benefit the life-saving work of The Alliance For Positive Change.
This 25th celebration was to recognize the agency’s services to New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS and other chronic health conditions.
Host of the event was CNN’s Javier Morgado, Executive Producer of the show NEW DAY. Featured keynote speakers were Greg Louganis, who is counsel to Governor Alphonso David, and Sharen I.Duke, who is founder and executive director of the Alliance for Positive Change, announcing the agency’s new name.
Sharon Duke said: “For 25 years, The Alliance for Positive Change has sparked positive change in all its forms, helping thousands of New Yorkers overcome addiction, access medical care, escape homelessness, rejoin the world of work, and lead healthier, more self-sufficient lives… But our work is not done yet. Now, more than ever, we need your support to fight stigma and end the AIDS epidemic through prevention, treatment and care.”
