SAAF Update

TUCSON (Observer Update) - Less than 1/3 of people who die in the U.S. each year have a will, and many of those wills are defective. Find out how a will can benefit YOU and the people YOU care about!

The public is invited to attend a FREE Write A Will Workshop at the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF), 375 S. Euclid, 10:00 a.m., Saturday, March 28. The workshop will address the importance of writing a will, the legal aspects of a will, and the charitable giving opportunities available through wills. The workshop will be led by attorney Doug Newman, P.C. of Douglas J. Newman, P.C. Attorneys at Law. Pre-registration is required. To register, contact Michele Bart at (520) 628-7223. Who should come? Anyone interested in a “hands on” session about making or updating a will, how to protect even the most modest estate, and how to ensure that your wishes are known and respected. Workshop format: The workshop is a 60-90 minute interactive session that includes a question and answer component and a complementary workbook, “A Guide to Planning Your Will or Trust” for recording important information regarding the preparation of your will. Light refreshments and snacks will be provided. ...

SAAF is asking for the community’s support in sending an official statement to President Obama requesting the development of a National AIDS Strategy and reallocation of funding for HIV/AIDS within the first 100 days of the new administration. To learn more about this effort or to add your name to the list of Southern Arizona supporters, please visit Supporting this very critical advocacy effort is easy and sends the message that we need action now for this 28- year public health crisis that continues to see HIV infection rates rise while HIV testing declines. ...

The public is invited to enjoy a sneak preview of Moda Provocateur at a public rehearsal, on Sunday, February 15 beginning at 1pm, at La Encantada shopping mall (upper level in front of Ra). This show deviates a bit from the norm in that salons create the show segments and then work collaboratively with local boutiques and designers to dress their models. Sponsored by Udall Law Firm, LLP, Moda Provocateur 2009 features salons Avalon for Hair, Skin and Nails, Aveda Institute Arizona, Ahead of Style, John Paul Mitchell Systems SW Education Team hosted by Spirals Salon, and Style 7 Salon. The show also includes dance from A Tucson Dance Company, The World of HuertArt, and Project Runway Moda, a fashion design competition. Moda Provocateur has become well known over the past 5 years for pushing the boundaries of hair, style and entertainment. The actual trend-setting event will take place Sunday, March 8, 2009 at The University of Arizona® Student Union Grand Ballroom, starting at 6:00 p.m.

VIP tables including dinner and pre-show entertainment are available, as well as reserved and student seating. Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased at any of the participating salons, or by calling the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation at (520)628-7223 ext. 258 or ext. 250. Information about the event and types of seating available can also be found at Moda Provocateur raises funds for the SAAF programs and services for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
