Our Beneficiary

National AIDS Memorial Grove is a dedicated space in the national landscape where millions of Americans touched directly or indirectly by AIDS can gather to heal, hope, and remember.

For all the promising prospects on the horizon, AIDS continues to invade our lives, violate our past, and rob us of our comfortable assumptions about the future. The sacred ground of this living memorial honors all who have confronted this tragic pandemic both those who have died and those who have shared their struggle, kept the vigils, and supported each other during the final hours.

Flag Alley

Flag Alley is a flagging event envisioned by Jeff Hettinger for flaggers, flow artists and those who love them. Come celebrate life and flow with friends in a studio space flooded with blacklight. This event will close out the Flagger Destination weekend…and just 2 blocks away from the Up Your Alley Street Fair!

We are very excited to have DJ Michael Rackley spinning a ‘happy dance’ style flagger-friendly set for us. For over 20 years Michael has shared his infectious Happy Music. He started out compiling tracks monthly, regularly mailing CDs to friends. With the advent of the podcast and his continued interest in mixing, Michael upgraded to club-quality mixes, allowing him to share his music with a wider audience. He is drawn to music that’s fun, catchy, and happy, and has a soft spot for dancefloors tracks from the late 90s and the 00s. He has played for the public at special events, mainly in Hawaii, where he resides. We are honored to welcome his unique sound and spirit to be a part of Flag Alley this year.

You can hear DJ Michael Rackley here: https://sfjeepboy.podomatic.com/.

There is a $5+ suggested donation. After expenses are covered, the proceeds will be donated to the National AIDS Memorial Grove.
