IRVINE, CA and SANTA ANA, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 2, 2016) - AIDS Services Foundation Orange County (ASF) -- a nonprofit AIDS service organization that has helped more than 7,000 people living with HIV and AIDS in Orange County since 1985 -- will host its Corporate & Foundation Showcase on Wednesday, November 2, from 5-7 p.m. at its headquarters in Irvine (17982 Sky Park Circle, Ste. J). Beginning with a cocktail hour that will highlight the impact ASF has made over the past year, the event will present opportunities for community partners to continue "doing good" while doing work.
Many organizations that have supported ASF and its commitment to fighting HIV/AIDS in Orange County will be in attendance, including Macy's, MAC Cosmetics, Disneyland Resort and the PIMCO Foundation, the philanthropic arm of global investment management firm PIMCO.
"ASF is relentless, innovative and nimble, and works tirelessly day in and day out to take care of those affected by HIV and AIDS," says Sarah Middleton, executive director of the PIMCO Foundation, which generously supports ASF through both financial and human capital donations. "We are honored and privileged to have this relationship with ASF. We firmly believe in the power of philanthropy and the power of volunteering -- and even more so, the power of collective impact."
The largest and most comprehensive nonprofit AIDS-service organization in Orange County, ASF helps men, women, children, and families in Orange County living with HIV/AIDS. Over the last the past year, ASF has taken great strides towards improving and transforming these lives by expanding its services and reach in Orange County, including an increase in meal deliveries, the launch of a discounted pharmacy program and the onboarding of a registered dietician and certified diabetes educator. To fuel its tremendous momentum, the foundation relies heavily on the generous donations of local corporations.
"We are so thankful and humbled by the support we have from our community partners," says ASF CEO and executive director, Philip Yaeger. "Every hour and every dollar donated makes an impact; and it's only through teamwork that we can see an end to HIV/AIDS in Orange County."
