Chicago, Illinois, April 5, 2013On Thursday, April 4th, forty of TPAN's (Test Positive Aware Network) strongest supporters gathered together at the offices of Seyfarth Shaw LLP to kick off TPAN's Spring Giving Campaign. During the month of April, TPAN is highlighting its history of "being there for one another" and reaching out to the community for support for the programs and services they have provided to the community for more than 25 years. The April 4th event also coincided with the release of TPAN's 2012 annual report.
TPAN's goal is to raise $25,000 in unrestricted donations that can be used to fill in the funding gaps for its psychosocial and mental health programs that are underfunded and unfunded. TPAN serves thousands of people each year through their HIV prevention and direct service programs, and reaches more than 100,000 nationally through Positively Aware, their well respected HIV treatment education magazine.
In partnership with the restaurants Wilde and Lady Gregory, for every $50 that is donated to TPAN during the month of April, donors will receive a $20 gift card. The Spring Giving Campaign is also supported by Walgreens, CNA, Seyfarth Shaw LLP, and Arnstein & Lehr LLP. In addition to the campaign sponsors, a generous anonymous donor has pledged to match the next $2,500 raised as an incentive to reaching the $25,000 goal. Visit www.tpan.com to contribute or for more information.
TPAN is the oldest peer-led HIV/AIDS social service organization in Chicago. TPAN's mission is to empower everyone living with or at risk for HIV/AIDS to live open, healthy, and productive lives. TPAN delivers innovative peer-led support programs and collaborative wellness services and disseminates accurate, comprehensive information through direct service programming and its national treatment journal Positively Aware. TPAN will continue to do so until HIV/AIDS is eradicated.
