Thursday’s event at Midtown Bowl, where you can register online now in teams of five, as an individual bowler or simply as an enthusiastic spectator in the fight against HIV, continues the fun ways that the local chapter of Cable Positive comes up with to raise funds, volunteerism and awareness or the cause. No matter how you choose to participate, food and drink are included in your admission price.
Cable Positive is made up of concerned members of the cable TV and telecom industries. In late 2009, Cable Positive¹s board voted to close its national office, leaving it to individual chapters to decide how to best serve their local communities. Since then, the Atlanta chapter partnered with AID Atlanta and has been a prolific supporter of that agency as well as organizations like Jerusalem House and Open Hand.
“Cable Positive¹s Atlanta chapter has always been an excellent partner for our community,” says Tracy Elliott, executive director of AID Atlanta, in a prepared statement. “The unrestricted funds our organization receives from groups like Cable Positive allow us to continue to deliver much-needed services to people living with HIV/AIDS in Atlanta.”
AID Atlanta and Jerusalem House split $12,000 in proceeds from Cable Positive’s Positively Art auction in January. (View photos). More than 100 people attended the Matre Gallery event that featured artworks donated by some of the region’s most notable talents.
