Downtown Long Beach Goes Red

December 1st, 2010

Today is World Aids Day, and its purpose is to raise awareness about HIV and and to tackle prejudice against it in hopes of stopping the spread of this deadly disease. There are 33 million people living with the disease worldwide and that number is increasing in every region of the world.

To show our support for World Aids Day, Downtown Long Beach will be going RED to join the fight against AIDS. Residents will wear red, and businesses and buildings will be illuminated in red LED lights. Also, to help raise proceeds for research and care services, 17 downtown restaurants will donate a portion of their sales to four local non-profit organizations who work passionately every day for this cause. To find out more information about the rally being led tonight by Mayor Foster or to see which restaurants are participating, please visit Join the fight!
