Volunteers Judy Halloran (left) and Linda Zahn help freshman Clinton Blackburn decide which chocolate will be the most mouth-watering at MIT's annual event to raise awareness on World AIDS Day. The MIT Women's League organized the Dec. 1 event, which included the chocolate buffet, exhibition of sections of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, a raffle, and displays from several groups to educate people about AIDS/HIV prevention. The six-hour event raised $3,105 to benefit the Names Project Boston. "We were delighted with the outcome," said Sis de Bordenave of the Women's League. "The MIT community is remarkable. People not only turn out for the occasion, but they lend their support by baking and volunteering." Photo / Donna Coveney
