The gathering is open to anyone. It will be held at the Ellen S. Clark Hope Plaza, located in front of the Eric P. Newman Education Center (EPNEC) on 320 S. Euclid Avenue.
Following the ceremony at the fountain, all attendees are invited to walk to Barnes-Jewish College on 4483 Duncan Ave. for a reception.
Activities at Barnes-Jewish College will include an all-day AIDS reading of the names, viewing of an AIDS Memorial Quilt panel, and a photo exhibition on the impact of HIV/AIDS on African communities.
