Dozens of people crowded into an 11th floor event space at Viewpoint on Saturday to celebrate 15 years of service by Positive Impact, which provides mental health services to people affected by HIV.
“Parties with Impact” was a combination of dinner parties across the city earlier in the evening with the larger event at Viewpoint on Peachtree Street, the site of the former Backstreet that is now a 36-story, 385-unit condominium tower, to raise funds for the organization. The event also called attention to the service of Paul Plate, who has served as executive director since its inception in 1993.

The evening also honored several people for their contributions to Positive Impact. Those included Sarah Lopez, who joined the group’s board in 1996, Veronica Motley, a longtime volunteer and employee, Craig Pigg, a volunteer and fundraiser, and Ann Vitale, a volunteer for several years.
