5th Annual Mardi Bras
ARG'S Fourth Annual Mardi Bras event was held at the Tropicana Conference Center on Saturday, April 5, 2014. The event featured a live auction which helped raise an additional $1,740 for the AIDS Resource Group and its vast slate of programming options. In total, over $12,000 in donations and sponsorships were raised for ARG! A huge thank you to the artists, performers and supporters that made this event possible. We hope to see you next year!
Red Ribbon Poker Ride
The Red Ribbon Poker Ride is an event covering 4 counties (Vanderburgh, Warrick, Pike, and Gibson) of the 11 counties ARG serves in Southwestern Indiana. Each registered player receives a score sheet which they fill by drawing a card at each of the stops along the route. The ride starts at 7/11 Tavern, travels to Cricket's in Newburgh, Bob Inn in Winslow, Sandy's Pizza in Ft. Branch, and concludes at Diamond Lanes. Highest and lowest hand wins. Each player has the option to purchase 3 additional cards at the end of the ride. We provide a meal at the end of the ride: sandwiches, chips, cookies, and bottled water. Other activities include: half-pot drawing, silent auction, door prizes, and trivia games. Registration starts at 9:30am, first bikes out at 10:30am, last bikes out at 11:30am, last bike in at 3:30pm.
The Annual Candlelight Ceremony will be held Sunday, May 18th at 6pm at St. Mary's Church in Evansville. Candlelight is a time to remember those who have lost their battle to HIV/AIDS and to recognize many more are infected and affected by the virus. Music will be provided by Gina Moore. Lamarques Smith, formerly of Evansville, will share what it is like to live with HIV. Lamarques is a very engaging speaker and will share his journey with us - sure to be an inspiring time! Please join us to remember and to hope.
