World AIDS Day Benefit Drag Show - Near December 1st
World AIDS Day is an annual event happening on December 1st dedicated to commemorating AIDS victims and supporting their friends and families. It is also a time to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS issues in our communities. Harmony takes a lead in putting together and sponsoring annual Drag Shows, that include student and community performers, to raise funds for Piece County AIDS Foundation. In the last 2 years we have been able to raise over $400.
