February 19, 2008

Faith-based leaders will partner with representatives from AIDS Services Foundation Orange County to host the second Annual Faith Community Kickoff from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at Rock Harbor Church, 345 Fischer Ave., Costa Mesa.

The kickoff is designed to raise awareness and instruct community members on how they can form teams for the OC AIDS Walk, scheduled for May 10 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Last year, Rock Harbor’s team raised almost $50,000 at the AIDS Walk, and of the $700,000 total raised.

“As the fight against this devastating disease continues, I’m happy to announce that last year our faith-based teams raised over $120,000,” Ty Rose, AIDS Services Foundation outreach chaplain said in a written statement.
