Ashland, Ore. — The fight against HIV/Aids has changed dramatically over the last few decades, but it’s not over. On  Tuesday you can join the fight by simply sitting down for a meal or grabbing a coffee.

It’s part of The Daedalus Project’s Daedalus Drinks, Daedalus Dines fundraiser.  More than a dozen local restaurants and coffee shops are participating in the event.  They’re contributing a portion of their proceeds to the project.

The money will go to support HIV/Aids research, prevention and community events.

Eduardo Placer, the director of The Daedalus Project said, “It’s because of that money we still have free HIV testing in our community.  It is because of that money that we have a house here in Medford that houses people that would otherwise be homeless.  It is because of that money that we gave scholarships to 95 students in rural Kenya who are either partial orphans or fully orphaned from the ages of 5-13.  They have access to education because of money we raised.”
