FUNDRAISER FOR EXCHANGE PROGRAM SET Members of the Hopkins community are invited to attend "Celebration of Achievement," an awards ceremony, concert and dinner starting at 7:30 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Peabody Institute. The event will raise funds for the Hopkins-Weizmann Exchange Program, which enables faculty from Hopkins and the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot, Israel, to collaborate. Weizmann scientist Mario Bachi is currently working with chemistry professor Gary Posner at Homewood. The exchange endowment was established by Eugene Zemsky, an alumnus of the class of 1953, and his wife, Delores. The evening will be hosted by actor Tony Randall, and will feature a performance by Yael Weiss, an Israeli master's degree candidate in piano at the Peabody Institute. University president William C. Richardson will be the guest of honor. Tickets for two, which include supper and dessert, are $500. For more information, call Linda Blumenthal at the Baltimore Office of the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science at 363-8803.
