September 9, 2011
St. Petersburg, Florida

Welcome to another day in my life. Today is Friday and I hope you have had a safe and great week. We have almost made it through another work week. It is a very busy weekend for Dab the AIDS Bear and me.

We have flown into Saint Petersburg, Florida for their AIDS Walk this weekend. The great folks from the Flamingo Resort have put us up since we will be speaking at a VIP fund raiser this evening along with Frenchie Davis from American Idol and Rent. So we are looking forward to the event this evening and seeing everyone. The proceeds from the tickets help raise money for the AIDS Walk.

If you are in the St. Petersburg area, the event is from 7pm - 9pm here at he Flamingo Resort. Stop by, say hello and get your picture taken with Dab the AIDS Bear in support of people living with HIV and AIDS. We will also be having an auction during the event, open bar and appetizers. To get tickets go to:

This afternoon, we will also be at the ASAP (AIDS Services Association of Pinellas County) testing office at the Flamingo Resort. You can stop in and get a free HIV test. Results only take about 15 - 20 minutes.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank ASAP, the AIDS Walk committee, the Flamingo Resort, Southwest Airlines and Alamo Rent-a-Cars for providing my transportation, flight and hotel arrangements. It is greatly appreciated.

Now the bear and I are off and running. We are looking forward to seeing all our friends, Dab the AIDS Bear fans and other activist for the next four days. It is going to be a great trip!

Hope all of our friends have a safe and fantastic Friday! Stay tuned for pictures from all of the events this weekend.

Until we meet again; here's wishing you health, hope, happiness and just enough.

big bear hug,

Daddy Dab
