Bailey House, New York’s oldest AIDS housing organization, honored five foundations, corporations, and individuals working to help New Yorkers living with HIV/AIDS at its 2006 Key Awards, held on May 18 at the Robert Miller Gallery. The ceremony, which raised $30,000 for Bailey House, recognized Joey B. Pressley, the executive director of the New York AIDS Coalition; the Red Ribbon Foundation; Lilia Garcia-Leyva, head of the MAC Cosmetics AIDS Fund; Reverend David Cockcroft, a former Bailey House board member; and Melanie Simon, who has supported Bailey House for more than a decade through development of partnerships with the vitamin and natural foods industries.
Bailey House also received a challenge pledge from an anonymous donor promising a gift of $50,000 by June 30, if Bailey House raises at least an additional $50,000 in private funds by that date. To make a donation visit baileyhouse.org.
