The Student Government Association granted Emerson Fights Aids $13,125.05 after an appeal at the Tuesday night meeting. EFA will use the funds to cover expenses for the annual Emerson Fights Aids Week.

Seniors Nathan Koval, an acting major, and Anna Trachtman, a theater studies major, presented the appeal. The two said the organization lowered its original appeal by $1,000 after receiving new price quotes for the areas they seek to rent for fundraising events this week.

The organization will rent the Paramount Mainstage, Semel Theater, and a portion of the Taj Hotel for its annual Gala on Saturday. According to the appeals packet, EFA partnered with several co-sponsors, including Musical Theater Society, to pay for merchandise and food.

EFA is the largest collegiate donor to Broadway Cares, raising over $50,000 in the last 10 years. The first event on Monday night, a Halloween-themed date auction, raised $350 and over $200 has been raised through online donations.
