Thrive Tribe Foundation (TTF), the non-profit organization that fights against HIV by empowering its members to be active participants in their healthcare, will host Big Night Out Gala Fundraiser at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. The Premier Gala Reception will take place on August 12, 2017, from 4pm to 7pm
TTF uses a peer-to-peer model to create a community that is judgment free and provides a safe space for HIV+ and HIV neg individuals. Proceeds to benefit the end of HIV transmission through empowerment, community, and connection.
The Premier Gala Reception is designed to showcase entertainment, LA lifestyles, fine dining, architectural design, outstanding auctions, and more. It was created nearly two decades ago by AIDS Service Center (ASC) in Pasadena. The event grew into one of the most successful charity events in the area.
Thrive Tribe continued the legacy of ASC after it closed two years ago. The organization engaged former Executive Director Anthony Guthmiller to produce the event this year. Big Night Out will continue to explore the beauty and uniqueness of Southern California now benefiting TTF.
The theme this year is inspired by the circus and Parisian shows like the Moulin Rouge. Entertainment will have a Cirque du Soleil style and include LED spinners, dancers, and performers. Special guests will include Kitten Kay Sera (The Pink Lady of Hollywood), Eric Leonardos (HIV Activist & winner of reality TV show Finding Prince Charming) and Club Posers (high energy dance company that honors today’s hottest pop stars, by imitating musical icons and pop culture performances).
Over four hundred guests will gather at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills for the event’s Premier Gala Reception and then proceed to various themed dinner parties for the rest of the evening. The reception will feature auctions and samplings from the finest local restaurants & caterers. Guests will then depart to one of many uniquely themed dinner parties throughout the area.
