Local medical supplier Ports International Limited recently made a donation towards the AIDS Foundation’s 18th Annual Red Ribbon Ball.   Organized by Colina Insurance Limited, The Bahamas AIDS Foundation is inviting persons to be as a part of the 18th Annual Red Ribbon Ball, on Saturday, November 12, 2011 in the Imperial Ballroom of the Atlantis Resort, Paradise Island.

Under the theme “Removing the Mask”, this year’s Ball is a masquerade (or, rather, un-masquerade) event to highlight the importance of emanating the continued stigma attached to HIV/AIDS.

The Ball Committee is asking for support and assistance to continue to take the lead in fighting HIV/AIDS.  The Red Ribbon Ball has netted more than $800,000 for the Foundation since its inception.

In addition to numerous education and treatment initiatives, the funds which have been raised by the Ball have enabled the Foundation to purchase a house in the southern area of Nassau to be operated as a resource center for adolescents living with HIV/AIDS.  For more information or for tickets to the Red Ribbon Ball, call (242) 396-2122.
