"You can't catch AIDS from a theater seat..."

Dateline: Wed 16 Apr 2008

But you can take a seat yourself at Clowes Memorial Hall Monday, and help spread the word that AIDS is preventable in Indiana.

The 15th annual Spotlight fund-raiser -- One Night, One Stage, One Reason -- will be center stage at 7:30 p.m. Monday in Clowes in Indianapolis. For the price of a ticket(either $32.50 or $100) you'll see and hear some amazing local talent, including:

--The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, Dance Kaleidoscope, Kenyetta' Dance Company, Anderson High School Singers Unlimited, the Indianapolis Mens Chorus, Indianapolis Civic Theatre, American Cabaret Theatre, gospel music star Rodnie Bryant, Minister Janes Andrews and New Seasons and -- last but not least -- Asia LaBouche of the famous "Ladies of Legends" who will do an encore performance of "Proud Mary."

Sounds like a whopper of a show, and the best news is that you'll be raising funds for the Indiana AIDS Fund. That group works to educate Hoosiers about the prevention of HIV/AIDS and to support those living with the illness.

This is the 15th year for Spotlight, which has excellent community backing based on its list of sponsors. The biggies are Community Health Network, Efroymson Family Fund, a CICF Fund, The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis, Indiana State Department of Health and Deborah J. Simon, each of whom have donated $25,000 or more.

Tickets are on sale at Clowes box office or through Ticketmaster.

And no, I usually don't do this sort of blog work, but I lost a friend to AIDS in 1995. I'm glad to spread the word about anything that can help.
