Event to benefit AIDS Arms, other local AIDS service organizations
The 16th annual AIDS LifeWalk is set for Oct. 1 in Lee Park, 3400 Turtle Creek Blvd. Registration for the walk starts at noon, with the walk stepping off at 1 p.m.
The LifeWalk festival runs from noon to 6 p.m., and will include live music, food concessions, beer and wine, vendors, information booths, an SPCA Mobile Adoption van and a Jack FM “kids area” complete with a bounce house, balloon clown, face painters and dunking booths.
The LifeWalk raffle drawing, featuring a seven-night cruise and two round-trip tickets on American Airlines, will conclude the event.
Former Texas State Rep. Harryette Ehrhardt is honorary chair for LifeWalk 2006, and local radio and TV news personalities will also participate throughout the day.
Proceeds will benefit AIDS Arms, the organization that presents the event, along with the Greg Dollgener Memorial Fund, Dallas Legal Hospice and the Resource Center of Dallas.
AIDS LifeWalk has raised more than $6 million since 1991.
