The hitch? Money. "If we bought the drugs they need here and sent them over, we'd pay ten times the price," says Tina Campbell, spokeswoman for the Zimbabwe AIDS Assistance Treatment Project. "Doctors there can buy at them at a fraction of the cost."
To that end, the ZATA Project Artwork Auction, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Denver, 555 17th Avenue, will offer works of Zimbabwean art, including a small Chapungu sculpture, to raise funds for the venture. Admission is $45; call 303-770-05436 or go to www.zataproject.org. -- Susan Froyd
