This fundraiser will support  Aunt Rita’s Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the alleviation and elimination of HIV/AIDS through funding, fundraising, research, and prevention services.
The organization originally began in 1986, when three individuals-Randy Schrock, Gary Mangum and Skip O’Neill, participated in annual bake sales to raise funds to provide relief for those living with, and dying from, AIDS. Over the years, the organization grown significantly, and it has introduced fundraising events that have helped provide more than $1.5 million
 to 16 local HIV/AIDS Service Agencies since 2005.
Their events include the AIDS Walk Arizona & 5K and Red Brunch, and RED is the Night. Art for Aunt Rita’s is free to attend and supports the organization’s outreach education.
