There are over 39.4 million adults and children in the world infected with the HIV/AIDS virus. This widespread pandemic is one of the most devastating diseases in the world, with a cure that has not yet been found.To assist in the fight against this disease the West Chester University Theatre Department holds an annual AIDS Benefit to raise money for the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BCEFA) charity. Usually held during the Spring semester, the annual benefit has raised over $12,000 for this non-profit organization. Now changed to the Fall semester, the AIDS Benefit will be held on Saturday, Dec. 10 in the E.O. Bull Center at 7 p.m. The evening will consist of a silent auction, as well as a night of cabaret – musical selections and performances by WCU students – all in the name of a very good cause.
There is no admittance charge for the evening, but donations are always welcome. Come support one of the largest fundraising activities on campus and support the University Theatre in their fight against AIDS.
