Last Call for the Hudson Valley AIDS Walk!

The Hudson Valley AIDS Walk is still on for Saturday, October 17, 2009 – rain or shine! All of our entertainers, vendors, and activities are covered by big tents, so we’ll keep you as dry as possible. Starbucks will be on hand with plenty of hot coffee, and you can stay warm with snacks donated by Hannaford Supermarkets. Registration and activities begin at 9:00 a.m. and the Walk leaves the park around 10:30 a.m.

However, if you can’t make it for the Walk itself but you’d like to turn in your donation envelope, stop by Mahoney’s Irish Pub at 35 Main Street (in Dooley Square near the train station) for the After-Party from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. We’ll be there to take last-minute donations and Walk envelopes, and if you raise more than $25 you’ll get a free Walk t-shirt!

Waryas Park is located at the end of Main Street in Poughkeepsie, right on the Hudson. There is free parking at the Poughkeepsie train station or along Rinaldi Boulevard; just look for our parking attendants and signs.

If you’re a night owl or want to donate in a different way, join ARCS for the official AIDS Walk Halloween Party at Truman’s New Paltz on Saturday evening, beginning at 8:00 p.m. in the Lounge. Ozzie Rich will keep you entertained until Isis Vermouth’s annual “Horror Queen” Halloween Party, complete with costume contests, prizes and surprises galore! No cover before 10:00 p.m., but all proceeds benefit ARCS and the Hudson Valley AIDS Walk. For more info, visit Truman’s website.

Thank you so much for being part of the largest HIV/AIDS fundraiser in the Hudson Valley! We look forward to seeing you tomorrow!
