LOS ANGELES, CA – Martin Luther King Jr. weekend will mark the kick-off of the Black AIDS Institute’s National Trump AIDS Bid Whist Tournaments in Atlanta and across the country. Bid Whist as it exists today is a form of an underground card game made popular during the times of slavery.
The Trump AIDS tournaments are a platform to mobilize Black communities to raise funds and build awareness in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Tournament participants are encouraged to get involved with ending the AIDS epidemic in the Black community while having fun and potentially winning guaranteed cash prizes. There are several local qualifying tournaments to participate in from January 15 to the weekend of August 27, 2010. A complete list of host cities is available at www.trumpaids.org.
The Tournament will culminate at the Trump AIDS nationals November 2010.
