The Eureka Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence are partying with a purpose this Saturday. “This year, we’re focusing on the theme Getting to Zero. What that means is, we want zero new infections, zero deaths from HIV related illnesses, and zero discrimination,” explains Sister Mary Poppin Bottoms.
This is the first year the Sisters have celebrated World Aids Day with Red Dress Humboldt and a fundraising party. Sister Mary Poppin Bottoms, Sister Faun D’Amen and Sister Juana Little discuss the red ribbon that serves as a global symbol of HIV/AIDS, the fundraiser, and the work they do to support those living with HIV/AIDS. The Red Dress-Dress Red Ball takes place on Saturday, December 2, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Eagle House in Eureka.
Red Dress Humboldt is a whimsical fundraising event where everyone is encouraged to be brave, let loose, and celebrate impact. Like the name suggests, attendees are required to wear a red dress or dress red, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation. This serves as a powerful sign of compassion and solidarity for those affected by HIV/AIDS and as a way to unite the crowd in one radiant theme.
