Tuned In to John Francis and Friends Night

October 5, 2008 Tuned In recently teamed up with WXPN to sponsor a fund raiser entitled "John Francis and Friends Night". John Francis is one of our original Tuned In artists. He put together a concert at The General Lafayette Inn, in Lafayette Hill, PA, to support "The Philadelphia AIDS Fund".

John brought along many friends who performed for a packed audience. Also there to help host the event was WXPN's Heln Leicht. The audience was treated to the wonderful sounds of The Spinning leaves, Hezekiah Jones, Kelly McRae, Sarah Fullen and The Stanleys, and John Francis.

All month long we will feature these artists on our Tuned In segment on Action News.

About AIDS Fund (from their website):

AIDS Fund, supports HIV/AIDS education, prevention, and services in the Delaware Valley Region by raising dollars and increasing public awareness about the impact of HIV on our communities. Currently, 30 partner organizations are receiving funding as a result of AIDS Fund's activities to provide critical HIV prevention education and care services.

Since its founding, AIDS Fund has remained committed to the philosophy that by coming together, each individual can make a difference in the fight against HIV/AIDS in their community. Critical to the success of AIDS Fund is our ability to mobilize thousands of volunteers and donors annually to produce events and to generate funds. These volunteers are valued for their commitment, compassion, and their community response to the AIDS epidemic.
