Auction Shines Without Stars


Washington Times (09/15/94) P. C14

Although only a few stars appeared at a celebrity auction to benefit AIDSWalk '94, the auction was considered a success. Organizers of the auction, which took place Tuesday night at the Hard Rock Cafe in Washington, D.C., hoped to equal the $25,000 raised through ticket sales. Both the sold-out auction and AIDSWalk will donate the proceeds of their events to the Whitman-Walker Clinic and 23 other AIDS organizations.
