Join us on Saturday, June 24th, 2023, at the Donald L. Tucker Civic Center to bid on amazing artwork by some of the best local and regional artists. Artopia boasts over 300 pieces of art in the silent auction and 10-15 best-in-show pieces in the rousing live auction! The best part is you don’t need to be an art critic to enjoy this lively event.
Big Bend Cares’ Fall event, the Tallahassee AIDS Walk, draws hundreds of participants each year. This year’s event will be September 21st, 2023, at 6:30pm at the Southwood Nature Trail. Stay tuned to our social media for updates and info. The Tallahassee AIDS Walk works to raise awareness and funds to support HIV programs in the community. All proceeds will benefit our 3 local HIV/AIDS service organizations. We honor and remember friends and family, celebrate those who are living full lives with the virus, and recognize the work that still needs to be done.
Children do not have to be infected with HIV or have AIDS to be affected by the disease. Each year, some children of parents living with HIV/AIDS do not experience the joy of receiving presents or new clothes that fit due to the financial burden that often goes with their family member’s struggle to survive.
Buying their children gifts for the holidays may be an impossible burden or result in extreme financial and emotional strain.
Become a Holiday Angel and help Big Bend Cares create happy memories for these children.
Big Bend Cares relies on the selfless effort and dedication of volunteers to ensure the success of its programs. We want you to know that your generosity and donation of time does not go unnoticed and is very much appreciated. Below you will find a list of our volunteer opportunities.
Big Bend Cares exists to provide support to community members living with HIV/AIDS in the form of practical, financial, and emotional assistance. Big Bend Cares’ commitment to the community is achieved through case management, prevention and education programs, and volunteer services.
