On March 31, 2019, Mike Rose & Ruben Rodriguez hosted a brunch fundraiser at their beautiful Hancock Park home for STORIES: The AIDS Monument. Guests included Wilson Cruz and Adam Rippon who each spoke at length about the importance of The AIDS Monument for the community. At the end of their powerful calls-to-action, thanks to our generous guests, the Foundation raised over $120,000, which included a $50,000 match from the Herb Ritts Foundation. Among the guests who generously donated was Jane Lynch who gave $25,000 and later encouraged her social media followers to support as well. See Jane’s Instagram post here.
