Since 1995, the Steve Chase Humanitarian Awards Gala has raised millions of dollars for direct client services at Desert AIDS Project. At the February 9, 2015 gala, over a 1,000 people rose to their feet to give an ovation, and for very good reason!
As Alexis Hunter reported for The Desert Sun:
"Graham Berger Sacks, a young man of 13 years, played keyboard and sang an original song he had written for the event, Something You Can Do. His tenderness and sweet voice added a heartwarming touch to the celebration, resulting in a standing ovation. Sacks, by the way, is the grandson of philanthropists Barbara and Jerry Keller."
Hear for yourself in this episode of Nicholas Snow Live, plus the Kellers on the red carpet and powerful speeches by co-chairs Jim Casey and Barbara Keller.

Meet Graham's (young & hip) grandmother, Desert AIDS Project Board Chiar Barbara Keller:
Desert AIDS Project has earned a national reputation as one of the most comprehensive HIV/AIDS services providers in the U.S. We are one of only a handful of agencies operating an on-site medical clinic, a full range of client support services, and a comprehensive HIV education and prevention program, including free and confidential HIV testing.
In 2013 and 2014, Desert AIDS Project has been named one of the "Top 20 HIV/AIDS Charities" by About.com, for our high percentage spent on programs vs. overhead (82% in both 2013 and 2014,) our fundraising efforts (raising $100 for every $15 spent,) and our financial transparency.
