Singer Tracy Chapman will be the featured performer at this year’s annual fundraising event to benefit the Women’s HIV Program at the University of California, San Francisco.
Titled “Grow to Be,” the event will take place on Tuesday, March 20, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Rasselas Jazz Club, 1534 Fillmore Street in San Francisco. In addition to the entertainment, there will be a social reception with wine and hors d’oeuvres. Donations start at $150.
The Women’s HIV Program, known as WHP, is the principal care site for HIV-positive women in the Bay Area and now averages about 1,300 patient-visits each year. Proceeds from the fundraiser will support clinic operations, research, and patient services.
CBS-5 television newscaster Barbara Rogers will serve as the event host. During the evening, business leader Mark Pastore, who is a founding chair of the WHP Executive Committee, and patient advocate Mia McCarter will be honored for their significant contributions to improving HIV care for Bay Area women, children, and adolescents.
