The AID & Com­fort Gala

Dance the night away at the 28th annual AID & Com­fort Gala, ben­e­fit­ing South­west CARE Cen­ter, at the El­do­rado Ho­tel and Spa (309 W. San Fran­cisco St.) on Satur­day, Nov. 28. The Big Sol Band plays clas­sic jazz and swing, while Nosotros of­fers up a blend of rock, salsa, Latin jazz, and cumbia. Pi­anist Ron New­man pro­vides qui­eter en­ter­tain­ment through­out the even­ing at the pi­ano bar, and DJ Gar­ronteed spins an eclec­tic ar­ray of tunes for partiers who do not want to rest their feet af­ter din­ner. Guests can par­take in a pasta sta­tion and an ar­ray of deca­dent desserts while bid­ding on silent auction items that in­clude a tour of wolf-feed­ing at the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanc­tu­ary, cock­tail-tast­ing classes, cook­ing classes, dance classes, a gar­den hoop house from Grow Y-own, and a year­long mem­ber­ship at Santa Fe Spa.

The AID & Com­fort Gala was orig­i­nally held to raise funds for pa­tients liv­ing with HIV and AIDS; South­west CARE Cen­ter was es­tab­lished in 1996 to pro­vide health care to those pa­tients and now op­er­ates as a pri­mary care fa­cil­ity of­fer­ing a full range of med­i­cal ser­vices for men, women, and chil­dren. Santa Fe Mayor Javier Gon­za­les em­cees the gala, which be­gins with a VIP re­cep­tion at 6:30 p.m. ($150), where at­ten­dees can graze on cham­pagne and hors d’oeu­vres and make early bids on auction items. Gen­eral ad­mis­sion ($75) be­gins at 7:30 p.m. Tick­ets are avail­able at the door. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit www.south­west­care.org. — Jen­nifer Levin
