Long considered one of LA’s most enduring events on the summer social calendar, the entire parking lot and adjacent street is transformed into a stunning outdoor ballroom under the stars. Guests walk the red carpet, enjoy cocktails, silent auction and dinner – created by Los Angeles’ most renowned chefs – live auction and the awards program.
Project Angel Food is proud to announce that longtime supporter and star of NBC’s Will & Grace, Debra Messing, will receive the Founder’s Award at our 28th Annual Angel Awards Gala on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at our headquarters in Hollywood. A caring advocate since 2000, Debra is truly worthy of this recognition.

AIDS Walk Los Angeles is the world’s first walk to fight an epidemic.
In its 32 years, AIDS Walk Los Angeles has drawn hundreds of thousands of supporters to walk, and millions more to donate, raising more than $82 million to combat HIV and AIDS. The funds raised at the event remain a vital lifeline that sustains APLA Health’s prevention, care, and advocacy programs for the thousands of men, women, and families affected by the disease in Los Angeles County. Proceeds also benefit more than 20 other HIV/AIDS service organizations that are able to participate and raise funds through the Community Coalition Initiative (CCI).
