The Silent Auction held at our Annual Academy Awards Night Gala raises funds that are distributed to Bay Area HIV/AIDS organizations.

Through your generosity, Academy of Friends continues supporting the vital work of organizations providing critical services to those living with HIV and AIDS. Since 1980, Academy of Friends has raised and distributed over $8.7 million and has become one of the leading contributors to HIV/AIDS service organizations in the Bay Area. 100% of the proceeds from the Silent Auction directly benefit Bay Area HIV/AIDS services including direct care, counseling and educational programs. 

We're excited to welcome back our generous raffle sponsors for 2017 - Celebrity Cruises and Mercedes Benz of San Francisco. Our prizes are: 9-night European Cruise for two in an OceanView Stateroom on Celebrity Cruise Lines (Terms and Conditions Apply) & Two Year Lease on a Mercedes CLA.

Raffle tickets are available for purchase through our Board Members, Beneficiary Organizations and at events leading up to the Gala on February 26, 2017. To make a purchase, please contact Academy of Friends.

We would love your support in the form of a tax-deductible Silent Auction Donation. Our typical Gala draws over 1000 attendees and Silent Auction contributors will be prominently featured in our program materials. It's an easy way to show your support for the community while promoting your business or service.
