The folks of Kennedy Insurance held their 2nd Annual BBQ fundraiser in support of Patrick4Life Wednesday.
Kennedy Insurance President Tony Limina says it is easy to get behind the project because HIV/AIDS is a conversation that needs to take place with children and the P4L Foundation has opened the conversation in a very creative and positive manner.
"Youngsters get to appreciate what it means and it is done in a very soft sell way," he tells BayToday.
"Really what we are talking about is AIDS awareness and issues and concerns that are involved, but it's beyond that it's about healthy living, lifestyle choices -- it's a very positive message in terms of what we are trying to teach children."
