I included Jimmy's story when I did a blog about Dan's AIDS/LifeCycle ride:
I also did another blog about HIV that is worth checking out:
The drag show and fundraiser at Club 1220 in Walnut Creek will be a blast. Jimmy hosted a fundraiser for the AIDS/LifeCycle riders and it was a lot of fun. We had raffle prizes and got to see lots of great drag performances. The fundraiser will be held Sunday, June 19th. Check out the link for this year's event on Facebook:
Dan is an artist and has created some amazing portraits that he would like to donate to Jimmy's walk. The portraits will be on display at a coffee house in Pittsburg for the next few months. He will be selling them and donating all of the money to the AIDS Walk San Francisco. If you'd like to see the portraits in person (or would like to see photos and bid online), check out the event page I set up:
Speaking of Dan, here's his artist website:
And here's an article about his AIDS/LifeCycle ride that was on the FRONT PAGE OF YAHOO! Go Dan!
From what I understand, Dan has made over $16,000 towards his ride. Congratulations!!!
Back to Jimmy!
Jimmy is one of those people that I met and felt like I had known forever. I will support him every way I can! If Jimmy raises $5,000, he will do the AIDS Walk in HEELS. This is a 6 mile walk, people. Let's bring the pain!
If you would like to donate directly to Jimmy on the AIDS Walk website, please check out this link:
Otherwise, I hope to see you at one of the events posted above!
