NASSAU, THE BAHAMAS, November 13, 2015– Scotiabank is a platinum sponsor of this year's Red Ribbon Ball – The Bahamas AIDS Foundation's principal fundraising initiative.

Themed, 'A Night of Luxury', the 22nd annual ball is the Foundation's signature event, supported by Scotiabank yearly.

"We are proud to partner with The Bahamas AIDS Foundation because we know that the Foundation is working diligently at 'Getting The Bahamas to Zero new HIV infections; AIDS related deaths; stigma and discrimination', in keeping with the UNAIDS strategy," said Leah Davis, Senior Manager of Marketing and Public Relations at Scotiabank.

The 22nd Annual Red Ribbon Ball takes place tomorrow, Saturday, November 14 at Atlantis' Grand Ballroom.
