The African Peoples Association and the Center for International Studies and Programs will hold the fourth annual AIDS Awareness Gala Friday, Dec. 6, in the Student Union Auditorium.

Doors will open at 7 p.m.

The event with a formal dress code — black, red and white — will feature singing, dance and poetry by UT students, along with speakers who will discuss the effects of the AIDS virus and ways to reduce the spread of the infection.

Tickets are $8 for members of the African Peoples Association, $10 in advance at the “Ask Rocky” desk in the Student Union, and $15 at the door.

A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to the Ryan White Program at The University of Toledo Medical Center.

“The African Peoples Association continues its tradition of hosting the AIDS Awareness Gala to promote awareness of the virus and safer sex practices among the students and surrounding community,” said Victor Aberdeen Jr., UT junior majoring in communication and English, and president of the association.
