With the 2019 Baltimore AIDS Walk & Music Festival now halfway to its goal of $150,000, Chase Brexton Health Care is excited to announce the lineup of performers and Community Partners joining us at Power Plant Live! on Sunday, June 9.

Thanks to the hard work of our teams, sponsors, and Community Partners, more than $85,000 has been raised as of early April. Chase Brexton seeks to raise at least $150,000 to fund a newly established HIV medication messenger delivery service.

“This vital initiative will support patient access and convenience, and increase adherence to these critical medications,” said Alexa Milanytch, Director of Development for Chase Brexton. “We expect to deliver more than 5,000 prescriptions annually, and your support will ensure this cost is not passed on to our patients.”

In addition, Chase Brexton will be joined by a slate of dedicated Community Partners taking steps with us to end HIV in Baltimore. New to the event this year, the Community Partner program is a chance for local HIV service organizations to join this year’s 2019 Baltimore AIDS Walk & Music Festival as fundraising teams. Our 2019 Community Partners include: Johns Hopkins Medicine - The John G. Bartlett Specialty Practice, Moveable Feast, Planned Parenthood of Maryland, and Project PLASE. A portion of the proceeds they raise directly benefit their programs and services, helping those living with HIV gain access to holistic support for housing, food and other essential items.

Following a two-mile walk around Baltimore’s scenic Inner Harbor, a trio of talented musical acts will entertain AIDS Walk participants. Scheduled to perform at Power Plant Live’s outdoor stage are:

  • Davon Fleming: This powerhouse singer was a 2017 semi-finalist on The Voice.
  • Nelly’s Echo: An adult alternative pop/rock band, Nelly’s Echo is inspired by soul music and contemporary singer/songwriters.
  • Shelby Blondell: A Philadelphia-based indy singer, songwriter and inventor.
