    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A Huntersville clinic is working to raise money for its food pantry that helps people living with HIV and AIDS.

    Rosedale Infectious Diseases will hold its third annual “Evening of Hope and Inspiration” fundraiser on Saturday in uptown Charlotte.

    The money will benefit its Jeanne White-Ginder food bank.  She is the mother of Ryan White, the Indiana teen who made national headlines in the 1980s for fighting discrimination after he was expelled from school because he had AIDS.  White was born with the blood disorder hemophilia, and contracted the virus through a blood transfusion.  Until his death in 1990, White fought discrimination and worked to educate people about HIV/AIDS. 

    His mother continues his mission to promote awareness, research and education. 

    Ginder-White will be speaking at the fundraiser in Charlotte, which will also feature live gospel and musical performances. 

    The event is Saturday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m. at the McGlohon Theater at 345 North College Street.  For more information, click here.
