Academy of Friends annually produces the world’s premier Academy Awards Night Charity Gala as the centerpiece of its efforts to raise funds, award donations, and encourage volunteerism that benefit a diverse set of HIV/AIDS organizations in the San Francisco Bay Area. Save the date for our 2017 Gala, Sunday February 26.

Our 36th Annual Academy Awards Night Gala took place on Sunday, February 28, 2016 at the San Francisco Design Center Galleria. We would like to thank our sponsors, guests, volunteers and beneficiaries for another successful year benefitting HIV/AIDS Services in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

We look forward to celebrating with you in 2017! Check back for our Gala theme announcement and exciting updates with our event.

Everyone at the Gala will enjoy foods provided by the Bay Area's finest restaurants and caterers, wine and champagne by amazing vintners along with a fun way to watch the 2017 Oscars®.
