Project SAVE sponsors 'Safer Sex Party' to raise funds, awareness

STANFORD -- Project SAVE (Stanford AIDS Volunteer Educators), in conjunction with the Bisexual, Gay and Lesbian Alliance at Stanford, is sponsoring a Safer Sex Party from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday, March 6, at the Lagunita Dining Hall and Courtyard on the Stanford University campus.

Tickets are $2 in advance or $3 at the door. All proceeds are going to local agencies that provide support services for people with HIV and AIDS - Aris in Santa Clara County and Ellipse in San Mateo County.

The event will culminate AIDS Awareness Week, a week of activities aimed at educating the campus and neighboring communities about HIV and AIDS-related issues.

The party will feature music by two campus bands, Fornaka and Jonestown Kool-Aid. Divine Beat Sounds will serve as DJ. The party will feature contests such as "Pin the Condom on the Human," a contraceptive casino (guests can play blackjack and poker with condoms, instead of chips or cash), and there will be information tables staffed by representatives from local AIDS organizations.

Free prizes and refreshments will be provided by local businesses.

Tickets can be bought for $2 March 1-5 between noon and 1 p.m. in White Plaza, or for $3 at the door the night of the event.

The event is open to the entire Stanford campus and people from neighboring communities. For more information, contact Philip Hwang at 497-5804.
