That's where he heard about Open Portraits, a self-portrait photography workshop offered by the agency and led by Huntington Beach artist Mary-Linn Hughes. He joined the workshop in July.

Three weeks after announcing that a financial crisis was threatening to close Laguna Shanti next month, the director of the AIDS support group said Wednesday that at least two grants and a rally of community support have rescued the center. The most significant boosts came from the Irvine Health Foundation, which on Tuesday offered Laguna Shanti $15,000, and from AIDS Walk Orange County, which announced Wednesday that it will give the center $10,000.

Four years ago, Moloney was visiting the home of a man suffering from AIDS. The man's face and arms were spotted with lesions and he was weak, but he gathered his strength to serve coffee to Moloney. "I was scared to death," Moloney said.
