After 25 years, EJAF remains steadfastly committed to addressing the unmet needs of people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and fighting stigma as a major driver of the global AIDS epidemic,” said EJAF Executive Director Scott Campbell. “We believe everyone living with HIV/AIDS should have immediate access to high quality medical care and all people at risk of HIV should be empowered with the best knowledge and tools available to prevent transmission no matter who they are, who they love, where they come from, or what they do.”

EJAF is also delighted to announce American Airlines, BVLGARI, Robert K. Kraft, Leonard and Judy Lauder Fund, and Bob and Tamar Manoukian as the Presenting Sponsors for this year’s gala.

About the Elton John AIDS Foundation

At the Elton John AIDS Foundation (EJAF) we believe AIDS can be beaten. We act on that belief by raising funds for evidence-based programs and policies, and also by speaking out with honesty and compassion about the realities of people’s lives. Elton John created EJAF nearly 25 years ago, first in the United States in 1992 and then in the United Kingdom in 1993. Through the generous support of far-sighted individuals, foundations, and corporations, the two foundations together have raised more than $385 million over the past quarter century to challenge discrimination against people affected by the epidemic, prevent infections, provide treatment and services, and motivate governments to end AIDS. The U.S. foundation focuses its efforts on programs in the United States, the Americas, and the Caribbean, while the U.K. foundation funds HIV-related work in EuropeAsia, and Africa. Join us in speaking out, taking action, and contributing to our efforts to achieve a world without AIDS.  For more information, please visit www.ejaf.org.

JAMESON® IRISH WHISKEY AND NEW YORK RESTORATION PROJECT LAUNCH JAMESON LOVE THY NEIGHBORHOOD BREWERY FEST TO SUPPORT NEW YORK RESTORATION PROJECT, A FIRST-OF-ITS-KIND CRAFT BEER AND WHISKEY FESTIVAL


New York Restoration Project, Jameson® Irish Whiskey and 16 American Brewers Celebrate the Launch of a Craft Beer and Whiskey Festival and Limited-Edition Beers, with 100% of Event Proceeds Supporting NYC 

Jameson® Irish Whiskey is going where no whiskey has gone before. Today, the brand and New York Restoration Project unveil the first-of-its-kind, craft beer and whiskey festival – Jameson Love Thy Neighborhood Brewery Fest – which supports New York Restoration Project and brings together 16 American craft brewers from across the country to celebrate the people, places and things Jameson loves about local neighborhoods.  

 
On Saturday, October 14th from 3:00 to 7:00 pm at The Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn, New York Restoration Project will host Jameson’s Love Thy Neighborhood Brewery Fest featuring the craft brewers who are part of Jameson’s established Drinking Buddies program and Jameson Music emerging artists, Eve And The Exiles, J-Council, Julia Haltigan, Kristin Diable and more.

 
Consumers will see first-hand Jameson’s commitment to neighborhoods through live music, Jameson Caskmates and beers that are unique to some of the brewery partner’s local communities with their Jameson limited-edition beers becoming available in their neighborhoods at a later date. Officially on sale today, tickets are $30 and available for purchase at https://www.nyrp.org/LTNBreweryFest. One purchased ticket covers admission into the festival, and includes food and a tasting experience.

 
“We are excited to show Jameson’s love for local neighborhoods with this first-of-its-kind festival that brings together 16 craft brewery partners from our Jameson Drinking Buddies program who represent the unique qualities and tastes of their respective neighborhoods,” said Paul Di Vito, Vice President of Marketing, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Pernod Ricard USA. “This craft beer and whiskey fest benefits the New York Restoration Project and celebrates all the great things and people that make up the local neighborhoods around the country.”

 
As part of Jameson Love Thy Neighborhood Brewery Fest, Jameson is partnering with New York Restoration Project with 100 percent of the proceeds from the festival helping to create a greener, more sustainable community. Like Jameson, New York Restoration Project is passionate about cultivating healthy and thriving neighborhoods and collaborating with partners who give back to members of the community.

 
“As an organization that focuses on cultivating sustainable growth in our communities, we are thrilled to host Jameson Love Thy Neighborhood Brewery Fest,” said Deborah Marton, Executive Director of New York Restoration Project. “It’s great to see Jameson’s passion for community and how this festival is bringing neighbors together for a unique collaboration that will benefit New York Restoration Project’s community greening efforts across New York City.”

 
The Jameson Love Thy Neighborhood Brewery Fest is the culmination and celebration of the latest progression of Jameson’s long-standing Drinking Buddies program. Inspired by the creation of Jameson Caskmates, which was the end result of a collaboration with local Irish craft brewery, Jameson worked with each of the 16 craft brewers to create limited-edition beers featuring hints of its beloved whiskey. Jameson provided each brewer with Jameson barrels to age their craft beer for a select period of time. Each brewery in the program has produced a limited edition beer, only available in their local market that features hints of Jameson Irish Whiskey incorporated with their already distinct craft beer flavors.
