cynthia sommers - board member
New to the TAB Board in 2017, Cynthia brings with her a strong background in fashion, fundraising, and a deep appreciation for the organization and its work. “TAB is not only the best event in Telluride, its charity reaches beyond our town, our county, our state lines and our national borders…TAB is making changes worldwide", states Cynthia. After moving to Telluride in the fall of 1999, one of the first events she attended was the Telluride AIDS Benefit. The energy of the evening and the greater cause struck a chord, and she knew that her involvement with the organization would one day take on a greater purpose. 12 benefits and two children later, she realized it was time to up her game. For the past five years she has been fortunate enough to walk the runway, raising awareness and money for HIV/AIDS. She is now ready to up her game once again for TAB as a board member, creating stronger ties within the community and outside of it for the organization, and ultimately for HIV/AIDS outreach and patient care worldwide.
