SAN ANTONIO AIDS FOUNDATION CONSOLIDATES OFFICES

Jul 21, 2017

SAN ANTONIO AIDS FOUNDATION CONSOLIDATES OFFICES
Testing, Education and Communications Departments Return to Grayson Street Headquarters, Creating “One-Stop” for HIV/AIDS Services

SAN ANTONIO –The San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF) announced today that it will move its prevention services and communications office from the current location at 333 S. Hackberry St. to SAAF Headquarters at 818 E. Grayson St., consolidating all SAAF operations in one place.

The move takes place the week of July 24.  Free HIV and STD testing will be temporarily halted for three days while equipment and furniture are moved and set up at the new location – resuming at Grayson Street headquarters at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 27. 

Moving forward, testing days and hours will remain the same:  8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 8:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. Tuesday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.

“We are excited to have everybody back under one roof,” said Cynthia Nelson, CEO of the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.  “Combined with our on-site medical care and pharmacy, case management, mental health counseling, 365-day-a-year hot meals program and more, we will truly be a one-stop location for comprehensive HIV/AIDS services.”

Prevention services (testing and education) and the communications department moved to the Hackberry Street location two years ago while renovations were made to the Grayson Street headquarters to prepare it for a new focus on outpatient care, to construct an onsite pharmacy and to convert and update existing space to accommodate a growing and diversifying staff.

The newly consolidated SAAF offices and operations will be formally dedicated in the fall with a special ceremony and open house to be announced soon.

WEBB RETURNS TO FIESTA!

WEBB RETURNS TO FIESTA!


SAN ANTONIO AIDS FOUNDATION’S LEGENDARY FUNDRAISING PARTY TAKES PLACE AT THE BONHAM EXCHANGE ON FRIDAY, APRIL 21.


Theme this Year is “REEBOT” – Featuring a Retro ‘80s Vibe Entertainment Includes “American Idol” Star David Anthony Hernandez, The Pointless Sisters, Austin City Showgirls, Popular Local DJs and More!

SAN ANTONIO –The San Antonio AIDS Foundation (SAAF)’s long-time signature fundraiser, the WEBB Party, will return as an official Fiesta San Antonio® event on Friday, April 21, 2017, 7:30 p.m. to midnight, at the historic Bonham nightclub, 411 Bonham Street, in downtown San Antonio.  General admission tickets are $75 presale and $90 at the door, with $175 VIP tickets also available.  Get your tickets at the Fiesta® Store or online at http://www.SanAntonioAIDS.org
.
Named sponsorship packages with special pricing and incentives are also available.

After a year’s hiatus, WEBB will return to its Fiesta glory in one of the Lone Star State’s most celebrated nightspots, which is directly across the street from the Alamo.

This year’s theme is “REBOOT” – with a nostalgic nod to the fabulous ‘80s.  As always, the party will include high-energy dance music, cutting-edge live entertainment, a variety of full-service bars, delicious cuisine tastings - and Fiesta’s most diverse, fun-loving crowd.

Each year, WEBB attracts more than 1,500 guests and raises more than $100,000 for the San Antonio AIDS Foundation’s client services, including free HIV testing, prevention education, clinical care, the hot meals program and more.   It has become a popular ‘brand’ unto itself – with a reputation for being one of the “must-attend” and “must-be-seen-at” events on the first official night of Fiesta.

“We are so excited to share this news,” said Cynthia Nelson, CEO of the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.  “We are equally excited to partner with the iconic Bonham Exchange to bring WEBB back to its colorful, alternative roots in the San Antonio community.  All of us are dedicated to making WEBB an unforgettable extravaganza that will not only raise money for the San Antonio AIDS Foundation, but also raise awareness of the fact that HIV/AIDS remains a serious public health problem in our community and that we must continue to fight the good fight.  WEBB is a perfect way to both educate and entertain.”

Lee Haines, general manager of The Bonham, said he is thrilled to offer his establishment for one of Fiesta’s most high-profile and memorable parties.  “It’s a match made in Heaven,” he said.  “The Bonham has been a supporter of the San Antonio AIDS Foundation and WEBB for more than 20 years and we are proud to be the location for the re-birth of the party!”

WEBB started in the early 1990s when a group of friends decided to throw a spectacular party and make it a fundraiser for the San Antonio AIDS Foundation.  Local legend has it that one of the organizers of that first gathering owned an inspirational calendar that included the Ethiopian proverb, “When spider webs unite, they can tie up a lion.”  The planners were so moved by the saying that they decided to call the party “Web.”  But somehow, the word was misspelled on the first invitation – but never corrected.  And the rest, as they say, is history.

The party has grown substantially over the years and became an official Fiesta event in 2004.
It is now the San Antonio AIDS Foundation’s most visible and important fundraising event of the year.

ABOUT THE BONHAM EXCHANGE
The Bonham Exchange building dates to 1891, which is also the year that Fiesta was founded.  The historic building has had many names and functions over the years, but the iconic club we know today, created by the late developer Arthur “Hap” Veltman, opened in July 1981 and has remained one of the city’s hottest nightspots ever since.

The 20,000-square-foot building contains two dance floors (including the main one measuring more than 3,000 square feet), multiple bars, a 5,000-square-foot ballroom and a patio – making it one of the largest gay dance clubs in the state.   It attracts a diverse and colorful crowd and has presented countless performances by some of the biggest names in show business, including Ru Paul and Tina Turner, and hosted cast parties for such Broadway productions as “Wicked” and “Mamma Mia.”  In November, the Bonham’s ballroom was the site of the official Alamo City Comic Con After Party, hosted by “Walking Dead” star Jon Bernthal and attended by a host of national celebrities and local glitterati.
