The 8th Gala Sida (AIDS Gala), which had to be held at the WiZink Center in Madrid on November 29, has been postponed without a new date. As always, the main purpose of the Gala was to obtain funds to finance the research projects of the Fight AIDS Foundation. This year, with the celebration at the Wizink Center (Madrid), the focus was on growing both in terms of capacity and in terms of media and economic impact.
Because of the exceptional circumstances we are experiencing these days, the Fight AIDS Foundation, Cristina Cifuentes, president of the Community of Madrid and Miguel Bosé, director of the Gala Sida, have jointly decided to postpone the celebration of the Gala, one of the most important charity events in Spain thanks to the support of many companies, institutions, media, civil society and celebrities.
Despite this, research in the field of HIV/AIDS does not stop and the solidarity of the attendees and sponsors of this event, as well as society in general, becomes more necessary than ever. Thus, any financial contribution will be welcomed in the context of the #hablemosdelsida campaign. Further information at hablemosdelsida.com (only available in Catalan and Spanish).
