On August 14, 2010 Empower “U”, Inc. South Beach Aids Project and the Black AIDS Institute (The Institute), will host the final qualifying tournament for the Institute’s national “Bid Whist Tournament”.
Empower “U”, Inc is a minority, peer-based, 501(c) 3 CBO founded in 1999 by two African-American women living with HIV/AIDS. Its mission is to empower, educate, and promote better health care choices for individuals and families living with or at risk for health disparities, particularly HIV/AIDS.
The Institute being the only national HIV/AIDS think tank in the United States focused exclusively on Black people, has been looking for a uniquely Black idea that could be used to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS in Black communities and possibly raise resources to help fight this deadly disease. One such idea is Bid Whist. Bid Whist—in various forms—has been a popular Black American past time for centuries.
Trump AIDS and The Institute’s National Bid Whist Tournament, provides a platform to mobilize Black communities, raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and serves as the vehicle to raise funds to reduce HIV rates in Black communities
