“A Time For Heroes” Event Raises $600,000 for Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation


Celebrities came together over the weekend to raise funds for the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. 

The foundation’s 24th annual “A Time for Heroes” event was a family celebration jam-packed with celebrities, live entertainment, music, and a host of activities for children and teens.

Celebs such as Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale, actors Tamera Mowry-Housley, Tahj Mowry and Tia Mowry-Hardrict, as well as actress Jessica Szohr, singers Aly and AJ Michalka and Richard Simmons all attended Sunday’s festivities in West LA and were instrumental in raising $600,000 for the organization.

Interscope recording artist Jessica Sanchez, singer/songwriter and HIV activist Jamar Rogers and roots-rock children’s band Jambo performed at the event.

This year’s kid-friendly activities included a skateboard demo area, 4-way trampoline, micro-race track, sports zone, photo booth, and creative arts and crafts.

Since its inception, EGPAF’s “A Time for Heroes” event has raised more than $34 million to prevent new HIV infections in babies, provide lifesaving treatments to HIV-positive mothers, and support pediatric AIDS research.
