Executives at Macy’s Fulton Mall location partnered with a charity founded by late actress Elizabeth Taylor to present checks totalling $70,000 to organizations dedicated to combating HIV and AIDS on Feb. 27.

Elizabeth Taylor’s grandson, Rhys Tivey, was on hand with Macy’s Downtown Brooklyn Assistant Store Manager Tameka Baber to pass along a $50,000 check to Gay Men’s Health Crisis, and a $20,000 check to Visual AIDS, two local organizations that fight to bring awareness to the fatal auto-immune illnesses.

The event, which happened to fall on the late leading lady’s birthday, is a part of the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation’s ongoing mission to provide grants for existing charities and international programs to provide care and other services to people living with HIV and AIDS.— Colin Mixson
