Team Wicked, led by Wicked Pictures contract star Jessica Drake, has announced it has raised over $12,000 for AIDS Walk LA 2020.
The annual event, which was held online due to the pandemic, made the fundraiser accessible to everyone around the world.
Team Wicked, which included Tasha Reign and Asa Akira, announced they have made the top 10 for fundraising, placing it among companies such as Disney and Starbucks.
Team Wicked put its 2020 efforts behind the Support Walk, which raises awareness and funds for critical programs benefiting older adults living with HIV, including nutritious meals, counseling and housing. It also provides resources and funding for AIDS Walk LA’s transgender support programs and women’s wellness programs, which helps the community, regardless of HIV status.
“Team Wicked exceeded its goal by 22%, marking another successful year in raising awareness and funds for the important cause,” said a rep.
Drake said she is “so proud of Team Wicked and grateful to everyone who participated this year. The pandemic has put so much into perspective. Charity and outreach are vital, and to see people come together to raise awareness about AIDS and HIV within our community means the world to me.”
“AIDS Walk is something I look forward to every year and I am touched by both the participation and the fundraising results,” she added, extending her thanks to “Ken Mintzer and everyone at AIDS Walk and APLA for giving Team Wicked so much encouragement and support.”
“Seeing the team on the ABC7 special was so exciting, and definitely motivated us,” Drake concluded.
