Georgia: AID Atlanta Marks 30 Years of Services, Awareness

April 25, 2012

AID Atlanta is commemorating its 30th year as an AIDS service organization (ASO) by hosting several events throughout 2012. "We've set big goals for our 30th year and beyond," said Executive Director Tracy Elliott. "We're looking forward to continuing to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and giving hope to more Atlantans than ever before."

Events planned during its 30th year include:

  • the annual AID Atlanta Honors on June 14,
  • the Atlanta Cotillion XI on Sept. 15, and
  • the AIDS Walk Atlanta & 5K Run on Oct. 21.

AID Atlanta also plans to hold a candlelight vigil at Piedmont Park to mark World AIDS Day on Dec. 1.

Since its founding as a grass-roots response to the epidemic, AID Atlanta has become one of the largest ASOs in the Southeast.
