Columbia County Garden Party for the AIDS Council
Everyone at the Inaugural Columbia County Garden Party for the AIDS Council of Northestern New York was on a high from the Hudson Pride Parade earlier in the day, and their hearts continued to soar as the approached Forth House, the historic Hudson Valley home of composer Scott Frankel and architect Jim Joseph. Guests strolled through the magnificent gardens that border corn fields and drank wine under a tent as they raised money for the not-for-profit service agency whose mission is to reduce the risk, fear, and incidence of HIV infection, encourage the independence of people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS, and promote and understanding of their needs.
