On December 1, 2009 at the elegant Palmer Building in Charlotte, NC, JSW Media Group will host The Red Pump/Red Tie Affair(TM), a benefit for The Red Pump Project. The Red Pump Project is a national initiative to raise awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women and girls, ensuring that women are empowered with accurate knowledge about HIV/AIDS and the issues surrounding it. Currently, there are 40 ambassadors in 20 states. This will be the first Red Pump event in the Carolinas.
December 1st is a fitting day for The Red Pump/Red Tie Affair because it is World AIDS Day. This year’s gala will be a fashion-themed cocktail party, complete with live jazz by 5th and York, as well as a silent auction, an art showcase and a “Rock the Red Pump (TM)” fashion show featuring the designs of Washington, DC-based Abasi Couture as well as other local independent designers. In addition, we will honor a prominent leader in the community in her individual effort to raise AIDS/HIV awareness and education with the inaugural “Red Pump” Award. Our 2009 Honoree is Ms. DeVondia Roseborough, author of “Put it on Paper,” a nonfiction memoir describing her life before HIV and after AIDS, and she is also the founder of The Rasberrirose Foundation, a 501c (3) nonprofit organization whose focus is to minister to teenage girls aged 10-18, struggling from self-esteem, with a focus on HIV/AIDS prevention and awareness.
The evening will be filled with entertainment and chic elegance—all for a good cause. Cocktail attire is suggested, red pumps for the ladies and red ties for guys are encouraged. Complimentary hors d’oeuvres prepared by Chef Jay Jones of Chateau Noir and a cash bar will be available for guests. Tickets are $25.00 for general admission and a limited number of VIP tickets are available for $50.00.
