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.
