Among the more interesting items at the medical school’s annual Hunger and Homelessness Auction have been an evening at the Met with an opera-singing medical student, a weekend at a faculty member’s vacation home on Martha’s Vineyard and dinner for eight lovingly prepared by an accomplished biochemist. Last year the auction raised more than $30,000 for New Haven shelters and soup kitchens. This year student organizers are hoping to get alumni involved in the auction, which has been a student and faculty event throughout its 10-year history. “We’d love to have alumni attend the event, and we welcome their donations,” said Brenda Ritson, a second-year student and the auction’s co-chair. The event will take place on November 21 from 4 to 6 p.m. in Harkness Auditorium.

For information send an e-mail to: hhauction@ yale.edu or contact Ritson directly at: brenda.ritson@yale.edu or by phone at: 203-507-4663. Donations may be made online at:info.med.yale.edu/yaxis/auction

Calling all alumni who may be contemplating an attic-cleaning: we’d like your back issues of Yale Medicine. Of particular interest are copies of the Alumni Bulletin from the 1950s and 1960s.
