Community Research Initiative,CRI,Red Inn
Friends and fun at Community Research Initiative's 2016 annual summer party benefit in Provincetown. This year's shindig takes place on July 22, right back at the fabulous Red Inn.

The great guys at Provincetown’s Red Inn are once again hosting Boston-based Community Research Initiative‘s annual Summer Party in Provincetown from noon to 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 22, 2017.

It’s fun because it’s located right on Provincetown Bay at 15 Commercial St. and there’s plenty of friends, great food, drinks, special guests, and surprises. It’s feel-good because it raises funds for CRI’s lifesaving HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C clinical research.

And this year it’s especially fabulous because the Dr. Cal Cohen Founder’s Award honorees include Jean McGuire and Jack Mackenroth.

A little about Jack and Jean:

HIV activist and HIV+ fashion designer on Season 4 of “Project Runway,” Jack Mackenroth is creator of the HIV Equal Anti-Stigma & HIV Testing campaign and art director of #PrEPheroes campaign to promote PrEP. He also launched the HIV Shower Selfie Challenge, using the hashtag #WeAreAll Clean.

30-year history of HIV/AIDS artist, Jean McGuire is past director of the MA DPH HIV/AIDS Bureau. An early leader of the AIDS Action Council, she’s an unstoppable advocate for the FDA’s expanded early access to investigational HIV/AIDS drugs, professor of public health and policy at Northeastern University.
