20 giving 20

Commemoration of 20 Years battling AIDS

Return to the ARCW main page.


"20 giving 20" was one of the ways the AIDS Resource Center of Wisconsin commemorated its first 20 years in the battle against AIDS in Wisconsin. They selected 20 individuals or organizations who were key contributors to the cause throughout those first 20 years, and honored them at the annual Make A Promise dinner and extravaganza. The 19th annual Make A Promise Dinner, Dance & Silent Auction was held on April 9th, 2005 at the Calatrava-designed addition of the Milwaukee Art Museum. Guests enjoyed Milwaukee's best silent auction, delicious food, fireworks and dancing.
