A Report

Here is a description of the "First Global Benefit for AIDS" with numbers: The fundraising events brought 20,000 USD to american organizations for AIDS and 1,000,000 drachmas to "Elpida" (Association For the Support of People with hiv/aids (in Athens)). The festivities lasted for 7 days, from September 1rst to September 7th. The entrance to the parties costed from 3,000 drachmas (to the club "Factory") to 8,000 drachmas (to the "Hard Rock Cafe" and "Cavo Paradiso"). Participation was increasing day after day. And, -no surprise for Mykonos- the foreigners outnumbered the greeks. And finally, something that can not be counted in numbers, the were lots lots lots of fun!
