Actor John Stamos is to host an evening of entertainment and empowerment benefiting mothers2mothers International, a nonprofit that works to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV in Africa.

The event, to be held on November 3rd at 6pm, will feature a musical performance by classic rock band America, whose 40-year career has produced 16 albums and a number of chart-topping hits, including “A Horse With No Name,” “Sister Golden Hair,” and “Ventura Highway.”

“Helping Change Happen: An Evening of Music, Merriment, and Making a Difference” will support the efforts of mothers2mothers (m2m). Every day, 1,000 babies in Africa are born with HIV – compared to one a day in the U.S. and Europe. There is global consensus that mother-to-child transmission of HIV can be virtually eliminated by 2015, in part by addressing the needs of pregnant women and new mothers living with HIV. mothers2mothers works to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV with a simple and effective model. m2m educates, employs, and empowers mothers living with HIV to keep themselves and their children healthy. In 2010, m2m reached one in every five pregnant women in the world living with HIV.

Known for starring roles and guest appearances on such shows as “Full House,” “ER,” “General Hospital,” and “Glee,” Stamos will lead the evening’s program, to be held at West Hollywood’s Red O restaurant.

Attendees will meet Patience Hlengiwe Kweyama, a mothers2mothers Mentor Mother, hear remarks from m2m Co-Founder Robin Smalley, and be treated to heavy hors d’oeuvres, an extensive open bar, delectable desserts, and an acoustical concert performed by AMERICA.

The event will feature a VIP reception for Patron Level donors with a unique tequila tasting, thank you basket of special gifts, and a chance to meet the host and entertainers for the evening. Thanks to the generous support of Debbie and Glen Bickerstaff, all ticket sales and donations benefit m2m directly, and are 100% tax deductible. For ticketing information, call 323-969-0445 or email
