World AIDS Museum and Education Center Commemorates grand opening with ‘An Evening of Celebration’
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – To celebrate its grand opening, the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center will host “An Evening of Celebration” on Tuesday, Dec. 2, 2014 at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts featuring a one night only pops concert performed by the South Florida Symphony Orchestra. VIP Reception prior to concert at 6 p.m. and One Night Only Pops Concert at 8 p.m.
The museum is the first of its kind, wholly dedicated to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Since its dedication last fall, the World AIDS Museum and Educational Center has become a popular attraction to residents and visitors who are interested to learn about the history of AIDS and how to create a future that is AIDS free. The Museum has a mission of enlightening humanity to this continuing tragedy while empowering survivors. It provides access to information concerning the latest research efforts and treatments to help eradicate the virus and prevent new infections.
An Evening of Celebration will begin with a VIP reception held at the new, waterfront Huizenga Pavilion at the Broward Center. Healthcare professionals who have dedicated their lives to helping those with HIV/AIDS will be honored. The highlight of the evening will be a concert at the Amaturo Theater by the renowned 60 piece South Florida Symphony Orchestra featuring Conductor Sebrina Maria Alfonso. The event is presented by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
“The Museum creates important awareness,” said event chair and Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner, Dean Trantalis. “I support the Museum because one day soon I want to say, ‘HIV is no more.’ After that day arrives, the Museum will remind us that no disease should be so politicized that society’s response to it is delayed.”
