LOS ANGELES — Wicked Pictures contract star jessica drake is calling on more industry members to join Team Wicked in its fundraising efforts for AIDS Walk Los Angeles, which is just a month away.

The annual fundraising walk on Oct. 23 begins at 10 a.m. at Grand Park, 200 N. Grand Ave. Los Angeles 90012, in Downtown L.A.

Team Wicked reports that last year, it raised $15,416, for a total of nearly $70,000 over the last four years for the event benefiting AIDS charities. This year, Team Wicked aims to raise $25,000 and so far has raised more than $11,450, making it second among all teams participating. As team leader, drake herself has exceeded her personal goal and has raised over $5,000 to the effort for sixth place among individual walkers.

“Team Wicked has been doing AIDS Walk Los Angeles for the last four years and it’s always amazing to see everyone come together," drake said. "What started off as me walking solo in celebration of my birthday got way bigger as we quickly reached Gold Team status.

"With our increased visibility, we also aim to bring greater awareness to efforts to defeat Prop. 60 at the event with our ‘No on Prop. 60’ T-shirts, banners and signs!" she added. "Please join us by walking with the team, donating, signal boosting or all of the above. Together we can make a difference."

In addition to drake, Team Wicked includes Asa Akira, Saya Song, Brad Armstrong, Ryan Driller, Tyler Nixon, Alison Rey, Vanessa Veracruz, Venus Lux and many others. Supporters, fans and anyone else who wants to make a difference may inquire about walking with Team Wicked by emailing Press@WickedPictures.com.
 
“Thanks to jessica’s leadership, Team Wicked is once again one of the top fundraising teams at AIDS Walk Los Angeles and poised to surpass its last year’s total,” said Wicked owner Steve Orenstein. “It’s an amazing thing to see the industry rally around Team Wicked and put its best foot forward in support of AIDS Walk L.A. and the many AIDS charities it helps fund. We are thrilled to be a part of this great community that is making a difference in the lives of so many.”
 
Besides her ongoing work with Team Wicked and other charitable activities, drake is a highly sought after sexual wellness speaker and educator who lectures at universities and leads seminars and workshops around the world. She is the writer, producer and director of the video series “jessica drake's Guide to Wicked Sex,” which has received critical acclaim from industry stalwarts like XBIZ, Fleshbot.com and others, as well as mainstream outlets like Cosmopolitan, Refinery29, The Huffington Post and many others.
 
Established in 1985, AIDS Walk Los Angeles was the world’s first walk dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS. Over the last 31 years, the event has raised more than $79 million for HIV/AIDS prevention, treatment and advocacy programs. For more information, visit APLA.org or LA.AIDSWalk.net.
