For the third year, Cascade AIDS Project will be hosting the AIDS Walk Bar Challenge. This is a friendly competition between local bars and restaurants to encourage team creation, fund raising and attendance at the Walk itself. Each venue is led by a Team Captain who supports employee fundraising efforts, provides encouragement and drives use of social media to spread the word about AIDS Walk Portland 2012.
The Bar Challenge 2012 team which raises the most funds will play host to the AIDS Walk Portland Awards Ceremony. The next year, they will also be recognized as an AIDS Walk Sponsor as well as being the starting line for a bar crawl taking supporters to most, if not all, of the participating Bar Challenge venues.
Hobo's Restaurant was the Bar Challenge winner in 2011. Their 59 team members succeeded in raising $16,126.00 for CAP to prevent HIV infections, support and empower people affected and infected by HIV/AIDS, and eliminate HIV/AIDS-related stigma.
We look forward to another fun rivalry between friends and business owners to generate excitement around AIDS Walk Portland on September 23, 2012!
