Three Events Planned In Evansville For Dec. 1 World AIDS Day

   Three area events have been planned in Evansville for World AIDS Day. World AIDS Day takes place on December 1 each year. It’s an opportunity for people worldwide to unite in the fight against HIV, to show support for people living with HIV, and to commemorate those who have died from an AIDS-related illness. Founded in 1988, World AIDS Day was the first ever global health day.

The Tri-State Alliance will host an open house with a light lunch on Friday, Dec. 1 at their offices at 501 John Street Suite 5 in Evansville. Lunch will be served at 11:45am, and at 12:15pm the group will watch the 34 minute documentary ”Looking Back, Marching Forward, Hoosiers in the HIV / AIDS Arena”.

Also at the Tri-State Alliance offices, singer Jeffrey Bowen will be the keynote speaker at an educational event at 6pm. Pizza will be served at 5:30pm, and Mr. Bowen will speak at 6pm about his life journey from growing up in Southern Indiana, living in Owensboro and coping with HIV / AIDS.

Then on Sunday, Dec. 3 at 9am a World AIDS Day church service will be held at 9am at St. Lucas United Church of Christ, 33 West Virginia Street in Evansville. All are welcome to attend.
