ACT extends special thanks to everyone who made this year's virtual event a success! We raised over $50,000 to help support people living with HIV/AIDS in Connecticut. We could not have done it without the tireless work and endless generosity of Carolyn Paine and the staff at 4AVNOW! We are also pleased to thank all of our sponsors, in-kind donors, event volunteers, committee members, celebrity guests, and of course, Peppercorn's Grill for providing a delicious Red Carpet menu!
If you didn't get a chance to see it on Oscar Night, check out our virtual event program available to watch on YouTube.
