Today, November 11, 2008, the AIDS Awareness Club held their first meeting, headed by Kate Nelson (’10) and Molly Ruttenberg (’10).  The goal of the AIDS Awareness Club is to produce awareness of the spreading epidemic AIDS to the students and teachers of Cherry Hill East.  About fifteen students attended the meeting and discussed potential AIDS fundraisers.  Nelson and Ruttenberg informed students about the American Foundation for AIDS Research (amFAR), the leading organization dedicated to AIDS/HIV research.

“It is really nice to see how educated Molly and Kate are about AIDS,” said Alyssa Boneventure (’10), an attendee of the first club meeting.
