The Dickson Gallery of Fine Art and the West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation will present "Fine Art & Big Hearts" from 7 to 10 p.m. Friday as a benefit event for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's Pediatric AIDS Program.

The public is invited to attend the event, which will take place in downtown Jackson. One hundred percent of ticket proceeds will be donated to the Pediatric AIDS Program, according to a news release.

The benefit will feature fine art by the Dickson Gallery of Fine Art and Art Under a Hot Tin Roof, live jazz by Southern Comfort and heavy hors d'oeuvres by Creative Catering.

East Lafayette Street will be blocked off between Highland Avenue and Liberty Street to accommodate those who attend. Tickets are available now for a $30 donation and can be picked up at the Dickson Gallery, 118 E Lafayette St.; the Celtic Moor, 31-B Wiley Parker Road; Bella Mlange, 80 Innsdale Cove, Suite A-B; and the Modern Stationer, 907 Vann Drive, Suite E. Tickets also can be purchased online.

About 90 percent of children with HIV are infected through their HIV-positive mothers, either before or during birth, the release said.

The best hope for treating HIV/AIDS might be finding the right combination of drugs to stop the mother-to-infant transmission of the virus and inhibit the replication of HIV within an infected person's body.

Discoveries have been made at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital that have changed how the world treats children with catastrophic diseases.

Friday's fund-raiser is sponsored by Allegra Print and Imaging, Bella Mélange Int., Cadillac/Saab of Memphis, le Diva's, Modern Stationer, Robert's Jewelers, Scott Chiropractic Clinic, and the West Tennessee Healthcare Foundation.
