LOS ANGELES — Wicked Sensual Care Brand Strategist Jessica Drake is inviting industry members to join „Team Wicked“ in support of AIDS Walk Los Angeles 2021, which will move its fundraising activities online for the second year due to ongoing health and safety concerns related to the pandemic.
„To date, Team Wicked has raised well over $150,000 in charitable funds to assist AIDS Project Los Angeles in providing care, prevention and advocacy programs for those living with HIV in Los Angeles County,“ explained a rep.
„Team Wicked is currently ranked No. 6 on the annual fundraiser’s scoreboard, ahead of Bank of America, Paramount/Viacom/CBS, Nieman Marcus Beverly Hills, the Hallmark Channel, Anthem Blue Cross and dozens more,“ the rep said.
Drake serves as Team Captain and noted the „virtual walk“ opens up participation to everyone.
„Since the COVID-19 crisis began, nonprofits have been forced to constantly adapt to changes. From taking fundraising events online to meeting donors where they want to give, it seems like each week poses a new challenge,“ she observed.
„AIDS Walk Los Angeles is an event I hold close to my heart, so although we are participating virtually once again, the goal remains the same. I want to personally invite everyone to join us in solidarity and help raise funds for a segment of the population especially susceptible to coronavirus,“ she said. „With the highly contagious Delta variant now the predominant strain here in the U.S. we hope everyone is able to come together to create awareness and raise funds for an organization dedicated to supporting those affected by HIV and AIDS.
