The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) hosted its 28th annual A Time for Heroes family festival on October 29 at Smashbox Studios in Los Angeles. A Time for Heroes raises critical funds needed to end AIDS in children. Celebrity guests including Tori Spelling, Nia Long, Baron Davis, Alison Sweeney, Gabby Douglas and more enjoyed delicious food from top local eateries, games for all ages, and high-energy entertainment. The festivities included a day of fun where celeb families participated in carnival activities, human bowling, rock climbing, live music, pumpkin painting, and more. The day was capped by an upbeat performance by band Ocean Park Standoff, helmed by Samantha Ronson, Pete Nappi and Ethan Thompson.
Pediatric HIV is highly preventable, yet 400 children are still infected with the virus every day. Since 1988, EGPAF has raised more than $35 million, including $500,000 this year, toward its goal of creating a world where no child has AIDS. EGPAF is the global leader in the fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS and has reached more than 27 million pregnant women with services to prevent transmission of HIV to their babies. Operating at over 5,000 sites in 19 countries around the world, their work has prevented nearly 350,000 HIV infections since 2004.
