This weekend at Lakeview Park in Peoria, Central Illinois FRIENDS will provide free HIV testing in their mobile unit from 6 to 10 p.m. on Saturday June 11 and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sunday June 12.

The testing will be done while Peoria Players Theatre will be performing “RENT.” The theatre will be continuing its collaboration of raising funds for Central Illinois FRIENDS.

Peoria Players has raised over $1,500 already to help those infected by HIV locally. “Although this may not seem to be a lot, it goes a long way that a nonprofit of the arts is coming together to raise funds for a medical nonprofit organization,” said Deric Kimler, who is director of “RENT”, the Tony Award-winning, groundbreaking musical about friends dealing with AIDS.

With the state holding money from both nonprofits because of the budget stalemate, this collaboration has helped make up for cutbacks on budgets and loss of beneficiaries. Kimler said.

The money raised by Peoria Players has gone to do the following for Central Illinois:

  • Purchased Washer/Dryer for a couple with HIV
  • Helped paid rent for four Central Illinois FRIENDS beneficiaries
  • Helped a client turn utilities back on
  • Placed a homeless HIV patient

“Without Central Illinois FRIENDS and without the funds generated by two local nonprofits, these eight beneficiaries would be forced to choose between homelessness and their expensive medications,” Kimler said. “Without these services these patients would likely die a harmful and painful death caused by AIDS, on the streets of central Illinois. Once again, although eight is not a big number, when you take in effect that all of them have jobs, families, and loved ones, this becomes a larger pain to the community of Central Illinois.”

  • How a particular design plays to the market at large and to our readers is always the first thing on my mind when I see replica handbags; my personal opinion whether or not I’d carry it in my leisure time is way down the list of my concerns. That, I think, is why it’s taken me so many years to acknowledge my intense love for the Céline Classic Box Bag. The Classic Box Bag was introduced in 2010, so I’ve had ample time to examine my feelings on it but somehow just haven’t. I’ve always known I thought it was beautiful–I’ve never seen a version of it that made me feel skeptical–but until recently, it wasn’t louis vuitton replica bag I pictured in my own wardrobe. Maybe I’m just a little older now, or my personal taste has evolved just enough to appreciate something so traditionally beautiful not just as an idea, but as a thing I could have and use myself. If you’ve never examined one of these bags up close, but I’d certainly recommend it. Not only is the exterior a perfect illustration of Céline’s replica handbags uk particular sort of chic restraint, but the materials the bag is made with are absolutely gorgeous, both inside and outside. The interior is separated in a way that’s always reminded me of the world’s most luxurious accordion folder, but with butter-soft lambskin instead of thin cardboard dividers. The neat interior organization seems fit for a person who has a precise number of small, chic things to put in her bag every day. I, on the other hand, have always been a bit more unruly in my accessories habits, but there’s nothing to say I can’t evolve. Maybe I can be orderly. Maybe I can be a version of myself that carries this mulberry replica bag. Isn’t that, after all, what we’re all hoping when we get dressed?

  • Chanel is constantly churning out new bags, many of them being new takes on classic bags for the house. The Chanel Boy Bag quickly turned into a staple for the replica handbags brand, with many opting for a version of the Boy Bag over the Classic Flap (I know I am more of a Boy Bag lover than Flap at the moment). While there is rendition after rendition, sometimes a new version stands out. Introduced for Chanel’s Metiers d’Art Paris in Rome 2016 collection, the chanel replica Boy Bag with Handle grabbed everyone's attention from the get-go. The Boy Bag has always had a a chain shoulder strap, that can be doubled to make the bag shorter if you choose, but this was the first time the top handle was added. I love the addition of the handle, it gives this bag a sophisticated touch but remains super cool and casual at the same time. I reached out to Chanel to see if the Boy Bag with Handle would be made a permanent part of the collection and were told that they do not have further information at this time if this bag will be offered in future collections. If you love this bag, it was bought in 3 sizes and currently available at Chanel boutiques worldwide. What do you think about the hermes outlet for handbags with Handle? Not loving the top handle, which seems too busy for a small bag, but I prefer my bags to be either hand-carry or shoulder/crossbody rather than a hybrid. Would probably look better carried with the strap hanging down but I still prefer the original design. I like the handle but I especially appreciate the corresponding chain detailing on the edge of the front flap that matches the chain embellishment on the mulberry replica handbags handle. It makes it look "tough". (Well, as tough as a Chanel® bag can look, I guess!) I'm a man and this new, be-handled Boy Bag is almost masculine enough that I could carry it without too many sideways glances!
