Spirit of Life Banquet

The Spirit of Life Banquet promotes HIV/AIDS awareness. The evening consists of dinner, music entertainment and an auction of tee-shirts that are designed by our clients. We are grateful and appreciative of everything they do to support the efforts of the Bakersfield AIDS Project.


Clients and supporters raise much needed funds through pledges from friends, family and community members to continue client services. The Bakersfield AIDS Project continues to thrive because of it's many volunteers.

World AIDS Day (December 1st)

Your age, race, sex, place of residence, or income doesn't matter. HIV and AIDS affects everyone. Get educated, get tested, and get involved in the global fight to stop the spread of HIV.

Supporters of Bakersfield's AIDS Project, persons living with HIV/AIDS, their families, and friends gather at the "Liberty Bell" on Truxton Avenue at 7:00 p.m. for a candlelight vigil.

We gather to remember those who have passed and to celebrate those who SURVIVE! December in Bakersfield is freezing. But on that night, the love and unity that we create together keeps us warm from within.
