James Cohan Gallery is proud to host the 2010 Benefit for African Services Committee's Pediatric HIV Program, Positive Kids 3: Through Their Eyes. The event will take place at the gallery on Monday, May 17th from 7:00-9:00PM. Benefit Tickets start at $100 and all ticket purchases are tax-deductible.
This year's event will feature a special solo photography exhibition by Haik Kocharian of African Services' outreach activities in Ethiopia, as well as photographs taken by children receiving care at African Services' HIV clinics. All works from the exhibition will be available for sale to benefit ASC's 'Positive Kids.'
Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, 100% of proceeds will directly benefit HIV positive children. Please visit the event page on the African Services Committee website for more event information and to purchase a benefit ticket: http://www.africanservices.org/events/PositiveKids3.html
African Services has provided rapid HIV testing to children over 18 months of age at their Pediatric AIDS clinic since 2004. To date, they have diagnosed over 200 HIV positive children, who were then referred to partner organizations for further clinical evaluation, treatment, care, and support. Pediatric nurses examine children monthly and meet with their families to monitor their medical treatment and nutrition. African Services also supplies families with the vitamin supplements necessary to support nutrition for healthy immune systems.
If you are unable to attend the event, we ask that you consider making a donation atnpo.networkforgood.org For more information on African Service's many programs in the US and Africa, visitwww.africanservices.org
