The Bobby Goldsmith Foundation (BGF) is putting a new twist on a well known icon.
Each year BGF conducts its annual RedScarfAppeal to assist in raising much needed funds to provide financial support to their
clients during the cold winter months ahead. Most of BGF’s clients live below the poverty line.
For the first time this year a stylish red scarf has been created in the image of the Red Ribbon which is the global symbol associated with HIV/AIDS. The scarf embodies BGF’s goal to keep people living with HIV/AIDS warm throughout winter. It is a mixture of cashmere and wool and is embroidered with BGF’s recognizable Three Ribbon logo. For $20 it is one of the must have accessories of the season.

Scarves will be on sale at the upcoming BGF Bake-Off, which is to be held at the Midnight Shift Hotel, Oxford Street, Darlinghurst on June 18. They may also be purchased via the BGF website www.bgf.org.au or at Aussie Boys on Oxford Street during the month of July.
The RedScarfAppeal will culminate in RedScarfDay on July 20 which is an opportunity for people to wear their scarf with pride
and show their support of people living with HIV/AIDS in NSW.
The Bobby Goldsmith Foundation is also calling for donations. As you may know BGF relies on the support of the community to
continue providing practical, emotional and financial support. Donations of any size can be made via the BGF website
www.bgf.org.au. The support and warmth people show will be greatly appreciated.
