Last Call for the Hudson Valley AIDS Walk!

Friday, October 16th, 2009

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!

Just Added: Hudson Valley AIDS Walk Halloween Party!

Monday, September 28th, 2009

We’re excited to announce that we’re adding a whole new component to this year’s Hudson Valley AIDS Walk: the official after-hours Halloween Party! Join us for a frighteningly fun time at Truman’s nightclub in New Paltz on Saturday, October 17th – after all the festivities in Poughkeepsie’s Waryas Park – beginning at 7:00 p.m. From 7:00 to 11:00 pm ARCS staff will be handing out free safer sex supplies, taking donations from those of you who couldn’t make it to the Walk itself, and raffling off a bunch of spooky prizes. Lounge singer Ozzie Rich will keep you entertained in Truman’s lounge (of course – where else would a lounge singer perform?) There’s no cover before 10:00 pm!

Once the clock strikes 10:00 p.m., it’s time for Isis Vermouth’s 3rd Annual Horror Drag Queen Ball! Featuring dancers, performances, contests and more campy, scary surprises! 25% of your cover charge will go directly to ARCS’ programs for people with HIV.

For more information, go to or, or check ARCS’ website for additional details. Truman’s is located at 2 Terwilliger Lane, New Paltz, NY.
