Article: Help for the Homeless
Actors from many soaps lent their support to a Night of 100 Soap
Opera Stars, which benefited Partnership for the Homeless. Held in conjunction
with Help the Homeless Week, the event was held at Tonino's Ristorante
in New York City. Everyone donated winter apparel and even though celebrities
like Kathie Lee and Frank Gifford weren't able to to attend, they did raid
their closets to send help.
Caption reads: Richard Burgi (Chad) and
Anne Heche (Vicki) were among the group
from Another World who attended. Richard had
to empty the pockets of his trench coat before he
could donate it to the cause.
Dawn has a relapse and has to return to the hospital. This time
she's angry. She wants everyone to stop talking behind her back. And since
she isn't covered by any medical plan, she's worried about her hospital
bills. Chad tells her that her job is to stay healthy and go to
school. But some of the students don't want to go to class with an AIDS
patient. Her teacher asks her to stay home while he straightens things
out, but Dawn takes off for class.
