REAF’s Help Is On The Way XXII Gala

The Herbst Theater and Green Room in San Francisco hosted REAF’s “Help is On The Way XXII: On the Red Carpet” event on Sunday, August 21, 2016. The Richmond/Ermet Aid Foundation’s primary goal has always been to see the world without AIDS, but REAF recently began to expand its mission to offer support to disenfranchised and homeless youth.

Chow, and Eileen Blum-Bourgade, former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, Jr., Meals-on-Wheels Executive Director Ashley McCumber, and one of REAF’s “angel” philanthropists, Richard Blum.
