Since 1984, MZA has produced, co-produced, or consulted more than 200 events for a variety of organizations and causes in numerous cities throughout the United States. Its innovative and detail-oriented approach to event production and fundraising has achieved consistent – and remarkable – results.
Best known for its work in confronting the HIV/AIDS epidemic, MZA created the world’s first AIDS Walk (Los Angeles) in 1985. Within 2 years, MZA had also founded AIDS Walk New York and AIDS Walk San Francisco. All three AIDS Walks remain highly successful to this day at generating millions of dollars and vast public support.
Work in the HIV/AIDS field remains a core component of MZA’s work. The company has also played a major role in events addressing breast cancer, human rights, affordable housing and homelessness, and other causes.
