Stevie Nicks To Headline Elton John Aids Foundation Benefit
Stevie Nicks will headline the Elton John AIDS Foundation 's (EJAF) 11th Annual "An Enduring Vision" benefit show on October 15th in Manhattan, according to Ultimate Classic Rock. The fundraiser will be hosted by Anderson Cooper and will be held at Cipriani Wall Street. 2012 marks the foundation's 20th year, with last year's EJAF benefit raising $2 million for AIDS research and care.
 
During his keynote address in 2009 at the Biotechnology Industry Organizations annual convention, Elton John took time out to slam the state and federal government for allowing private organizations like his to foot the bill for AIDS research: "I often have to stop myself and ask 'Why is it left to my foundation and others like it to address this global issue of existential consequence?' The answer in short, is that collectively, the world's governments and industries are too often ignoring reality. And this creates gaps between what governments and industry are doing to address the HIV and AIDS pandemic -- and what they should be doing."
