SHARE SUPERMODEL’S BILLBOARD SEEKS FUNDS IN AIDS FIGHT

Supermodel Linda Evange-lista's latest billboard isn't a pitch for clothing or cosmetics but a fund-raising plea for the Pediatric AIDS Foundation.

The group's founder, Elizabeth Glaser and actress Susan Sar-andon unveiled the new billboard Monday at Times Square in New York.It also will be going up on donated space in Los Angeles; San Diego; San Francisco; Detroit; Houston; Chicago; Newark, N.J.; Denver; Miami; Atlanta; Philadelphia; the Washington, D.C., area; Minneapolis; and Little Rock, Ark.

"We can't afford to lose one more," says the caption under the black-and-white photo of Evangelista, holding hands with a group of children.

Glaser, wife of actor Paul Michael Glaser, contracted the HIV virus from a contaminated blood transfusion after the birth of her daughter, Ariel. The virus was passed to her daughter and her son, who was born three years later. Ariel died of the disease in 1988.

Potential donors are asked to call 1-800-488-5000 or Ticketmaster.
