OSF's Daedalus Project distributes $133,250 to fight HIV/AIDS

Ten local and international organizations fighting the spread of HIV and AIDS will receive a share of $133,250 collected by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's 2013 Daedalus Project.

The organizations to receive funds include: the Alan F. Collins AIDS Project at OnTrack Inc.; the HIV Alliance serving Josephine, Douglas, Coos and Curry counties; Siskiyou County HIV/AIDS Foundation (SCHAF); Africare; G.R.A.C.E. USA; Strength for the Journey, Light, Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS; S.A.F.E. Ghetto; and SCHAP Community School in Kenya.

"We're so proud we were able to expand the number of organizations we are helping both in the United States and internationally," Claudia Alick, OSF's associate producer, community, said in a statement.

OSF's company members and audience have come together in August for decades for the Daedalus Project, which includes a play reading and variety show. The annual event raises money to end the spread of HIV/AIDS and to remember and celebrate those who have died from the disease.

In its 27th year, the 2014 Daedalus Project — titled "Act V - The End of AIDS" — will take place Aug. 18 in the Allen Elizabethan Theatre.
