The largest AIDS service organizations in Boston and New York really want to help their clients.
With the slew of friendly wagers being made between mayors and fans on Super Bowl XLVI, the leaders of New England’s AIDS Action Committee (AAC) and New York’s GMHC saw an opportunity to join in the good-natured rivalry and possibly boost fundraising.
AAC President and CEO Rebecca Haag believes the Patriots will have no trouble defeating the Giants.
GMHC CEO Marjorie Hill thinks different. She, naturally, stands behind the Giants.
So each put a grand on the line. If the New England Patriots win, then AIDS Action Committee’s annual AIDS Walk will receive a $1,000 donation from the GMHC contingent. If the New York Giants defeat the Patriots, then GMHC’s AIDS Walk will receive $1,000 from AIDS Action donors.
“I have a lot of confidence in Tom Brady, Wes Welker, and Vince Wilfork. So I’m pretty sure we’re going to win on Sunday,” said Haag. “But regardless of the game’s outcome, services for people with HIV and AIDS will win out with a donation to this critical work.”
