New York, NY, October 31, 2011 – The Hispanic AIDS Forum cordially invites to you join us at Sol Awards 2011 in celebrating the 26th anniversary of the establishment of the first Latino organization in the United States with a mission to respond to the AIDS crisis affecting the Latinos in New York City.

HAF created the Sol Award (Sun Award) in 2007 to honor individuals and entities for their extraordinary acts of compassion, courage and leadership in our shared struggle to eradicate HIV/AIDS and its root causes from our communities. This year we proudly honor four outstanding individuals, each of whom has devoted almost his entire adult lives to fighting the spread of HIV and homophobia.

  • Peter Barbosa, PhD.
  • Mr. Daniel Castellanos, MA
  • Mr. George Fesser, LCSW
  • Mr. Carlos N. Molina

“Each of the Sol Award 2011 honorees –like the Sun– spreads enlightenment, strength and sustenance for a healthy life”, proclaimed Heriberto Sanchez Soto, HAF’s Executive Director.

Sol Awards 2011 will take place on Wednesday, November 16, 2011 from 6PM – 9PM at Battery Gardens, NYC, NY.     For more information on tickets and sponsorship opportunities visit solawards.hafnyc.org  or call Ms. Diana Velez at 212-563-4500 Ext. 307.

HAF fulfills this mission by integrating prevention and education into a set of multi-faceted wellness programs.
