Last year, Wicked raised over $18,000 for L.A. County AIDS organizations, qualifying it as a 2014 Gold Team. This year, the team says it hopes to raise more than $20,000.

"Last year, AIDS Walk L.A. was on my birthday. I wanted to do something really special, so I put Team Wicked together as a birthday present to myself," Drake said. "I was so impressed with how everyone came together to raise so much money to help such a great cause — one that is so close to our hearts — I decided to make it an annual event. It's important we all pitch in to help with the global issue of HIV/AIDS and I'm proud of our team for taking the time to join together in the fundraising efforts.”

Team Wicked is comprised of 14 walkers, including adult performers Kaylani Lei, Dana DeArmond, Kylie Ireland, Steven St. Croix and Brandy Aniston, as well as industry staff, family and friends.

Some of Wicked's team members are offering donation incentives for fans and industry colleagues who donate to the cause; various donation levels will net a variety of different giveaways. Those who donate $500 or more will have the opportunity to join AIDS Walk L.A. as a member of Team Wicked.
