Thanks to dollar matching by Bank of America and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, every ticket purchased will result in $600 to fight AIDS.

Chef Mario Batali is serving as official ambassador, and the goal of EAT (RED) is to bring the food world to the table to help eliminate AIDS. Of the event, Batali said, It’s a beautiful thing when food not only brings people together, but does so in a way that means real impact on the AIDS fight. Thanks to the enthusiastic support of so many of my heroes in the culinary industry we’re taking the campaign all across the country. So whether you’re eating, drinking or Tweeting, your choices really do count this June.”
