Welcome to the Happy Hiney / World AIDS Museum Team Fundraising page for the Florida AIDS Walk & Music Festival!
Hello, and thank you for visiting our page. This team is a joint effort of Dr. Elie Schochet, Colorectal Surgeon who started the Happy Hiney Team and The World AIDS Museum who we are raising funds for. The Happy Hiney's are a group of Dr. Elie's clients who know the benefit of being checked on a regular basis to ensure your Hiney is Healthy. Dr. Elie is a World AIDS Museum (WAM) Board Member so he directed all funds raised to the Museum.
The World AIDS Museum is a "benefiting organization" meaning that all funds we raise will be "matched" or "doubled" by the world wide AIDS Organization, AIDS Healthcare Foundation...the owner and producer of the Walk.
This year, we have an aggressive goal of 2 & 2 (200 walkers, to try and win back the biggest team award, and 200,000). So you can help us by walking or donating.
The donations that we raise will help the Museum to:
·Provide increased HIV / AIDS education to the children in the Broward County School District that is intended to eliminate Stigma. Broward and Miami Dade counties continue have the highest rate of new HIV infections in the country,
·Continue and expand programming at the Museum such as our Film Series and our Community Dialog sessions that also help to reduce the Stigma surrounding AIDS,
·Keep the Museum vibrant telling the “accurate” story of the AIDS Pandemic and to ensure that the story is never forgotten.
Thanks so much for helping us reach our goals regarding HIV / AIDS Education in South Florida.
Jeff Banning, WAM Boardmember & Dr. Elie Schochet, MD (Founder of the Happy Hiney's)
