Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS/Chicago ( DIFFA/Chicago ) presents its inaugural World AIDS Day benefit: STAND UP FOR RED Indoor Street Fest Thursday, Nov. 30, 5:30-9:30 p.m. at Center on Halsted, 3656 N. Halsted.

the event will showcase DIFFA's Excellence In Care Award Grantees, AIDS Chicago Foundation PrEP4LOVE, as well as have a special interactive exhibit called Life: Fight: Love, featuring former board member Jim Petrakis.

In addition, there will be live art and music, a collection of curated shops, bites from some of Chicago's top restaurants and specialty cocktails from Tito's Vodka. The goal is to remind the public that HIV has not gone away and there is still a need to raise money, fight prejudice, increase awareness and improved education.

Center on Halsted will receive a portion of the proceeds of the proceeds.

Street Fest Co-chairs are Jennifer McCord Crestodina and J.T. Garofalo.

Street Fest sponsors are: Windy City Times, Leopardo Companies, Corporate Concepts, Henricksen, Holly Hunt and Skender Construction.

Sponsorships are still available. Individual tickets start at $125 per person. Proceeds from the STAND UP FOR RED Indoor Street Fest go to Chicago-area service agencies providing assistance, education and outreach to those living with HIV/AIDS.
