31 May, 2006 By: Angelique Flores

The Entertainment AIDS Alliance (EAA), formerly known as VIAAC, is hosting its fourth annual Wine & Wisdom fund-raiser. The evening will benefit the UCLA AIDS Institute, which is celebrating 20 years.

Australian wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served under the stars. The benefit will be held June 15 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. on the UCLA Campus at the Covel Commons/Grand Horizon Terrace. Admission is free, and donations are accepted.

The UCLA AIDS Institute conducts research to find a cure for HIV/AIDS and, through its UCLA Center for Clinical AIDS Research and Education (CARE) Center, provides treatment services to people living with the illness. To date, EAA and its annual wine-tasting event has raised and donated $66,500 to the Institute. Last year's event raised $28,500.

The benefit is sponsored by the Queensland Australia government, Gordon Biersch, Image Entertainment, Translucent Media, Milliken Chemical and Entertainment Support Systems.

Guest capacity is 300 (first come, first served). Reservations are necessary; RSVPs are due no later than June 8. Call (213) 833-6694 or e-mail heatherhinkel@aol.com.
