SAAF Fundraising Events
SAAF has 6 signature special events that are held annually. All start with the creativity and hard work of volunteers who believe that by having special events, SAAF would increase the community’s awareness and need for funding in support of HIV & AIDS programs and services. The tradition of each of these events has grown tremendously over the last 30+ years but continues to have a strong emphasis on the importance of raising funds in support of HIV/AIDS programs and services offered by SAAF and increasing awareness, education, and sensitivity for HIV/AIDS. For more information on one of these events, please visit their pages.
