WHAT
RED Dayton Table Design Gala is a biennial event produced by and to benefit Equitas Health. Equitas Health is Ohio’s premier community-based, not-for-profit provider of a comprehensive, coordinated and cutting-edge response to HIV/AIDS, from prevention to diagnosis and treatment.

RED Dayton will highlight the talents, creativity, and imagination of the area’s top artists and designers. Dining tables will be decorated around a central theme.

You’ll enjoy strolling through the fabulous designer tables as you partake in an array of delicious hors d’oeuvre and cocktails. At dinner time, you will dine at your uniquely designed table.

 

WHY RED?
Reach. Empower. Dream. A world without AIDS. Today an estimated 1.2 million Americans are living with HIV and over 20% of them do not even know they are infected. In Central Ohio, a new infection occurs every twenty-two hours.

 

GOAL
To raise $250,000 through sponsorships, program ad sales, tickets sales, auction items, and donations – all to assist in providing meals, housing, healthcare, testing and prevention, stigma reduction, counseling, and most of all COMPASSION and HOPE to those living with HIV and AIDS in Ohio.
