Bloom: Show Compassion is Asian & Pacific Islander Wellness Center’s signature fundraiser and the 5th Annual National Asian & Pacific Islander HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. Join us for a spring gathering featuring entertainment, deletable bites from San Francisco’s top restaurants (including Poleng Lounge, Anzu & Sukhi’s Gourmet Indian Cuisine), amazing Silent Auction deals, and community awards.
This year Bloom will be held at the beautiful San Francisco Design Center Galleria on the evening of Tuesday, May 19th, and will feature local and national personalities. We will also present our Ally Award to Joseph Garrett, JD, for his enormous contributions and overarching commitment to stemming the HIV epidemic locally, nationally and globally, as well as for his longtime support of A&PI Wellness Center and our clients.

Bloom raises vital funds to support our life enhancing programs. Last year’s Bloom was a success, raising $85,000 that that enabled us to continue to provide a wide array of exemplary, culturally sensitive HIV care and prevention services as well as provide capacity building support to other A&PI organizations around the country.
