Kim and Kanye bring World AIDS Day awareness coast to coast

By BRYNN MANNINO

Building on both her charitable run and public admiration for Elizabeth Taylor, Kim Kardashian West raised a toast Monday to her admitted idol at The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation's World AIDS Day fundraiser at popular West Hollywood gay bar, The Abbey.

The appearance was meant to bolster Taylor's AIDS foundation, The Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, which Taylor founded in 1991 'to raise funds and awareness to fight the spread of HIV/AIDS, and to provide assistance for those living with the virus.'

After the toast, the 34-year-old mother and reality star tweeted, 'Thank you to everyone who came to The Abbey tonight in support of World AIDS Day!' and posted a link to a short call-to-action film on the foundation website narrated by actor Colin Farrell.
