AIDS Support Group Holds 25th Anniversary Fundraiser

KA_Ptown_lobster pot_provincetown_light snow_flurries_winter_commercial street_010416200HYANNIS – The AIDS Support Group of Cape Cod (ASGCC) will celebrate the 25th anniversary of “A Night at the Chef’s Table” on Thursday.

The annual fundraiser supports the agency’s work to reduce the spread of HIV and care for those living with HIV.

Over 50 restaurants from Sandwich to Provincetown will open their doors for the organization’s event.

“It’s a really nice night out and it’s a time for people to both help out what’s going on still with the HIV/AIDS epidemic and also to remember the many people we have lost over the years,” said ASGCC CEO Joe Carleo.

The Cape-wide tradition began in 1991 when Brewster Innkeeper Charles DiCesare and Provincetown Chef Franco Palumbo created an event to raise awareness and money during a time when AIDS was fast becoming the number one cause of death in some men in the U.S.

The Lobster Pot in Provincetown has participated and contributed to the event for the last 25 years.

Tickets for the event are $100 and dinner reservations can be made by calling the ASGCC at 508-487-9445.

“This fundraiser primarily goes towards our food budget and it provides overall support to the agency as well,” said Carleo.
