PorSChe FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) -Kimberly Bergalis donated thousands of dollars to AIDS research, ordered a Porsche for her Aunt Prudence, and left the remainder of more than $1 million in insurance settlements to family and friends. Miss Bergalis who died Dec. 8 at age 23, was the first person known to become infected by a health professional while receiving treatment. She used the last months of her life to campaign for mandatory testing of health-care prolessionals. . ' Her family said the will, drawn up last April and filed in court this month, displayed her generosity and humor. . . To cap a long-running family joke, she instructed her father to buy "a " new, red Porsche and deliver it to my aunt with a large bow on top." Prudence Sommers, a factory worker in Pennsylvania, said she had urged her niece since she was 12 , to study hard and succeed so that she could one day buy a Porsche for her. "This was her goodbye to us," t Sommers said. "I just wish she could, have given it with living hands, with a job of her own ... not iri.4. gasket." Geralynn Delevante, 24,-who has- r known Miss Bergalis since the seventh grade, said she, was shocked to" learn Saturday her best friend had left her $50,000. ; "I thought it was extremely generous," she said. "It makes me feel bad ' that She had to die for me to get the, money." t She said Bergalis wanted her to be . able to pay the debts Delevante ran up after leaving a job as a waitress in Tampa to be with ner. f Health officials said Miss Bergalis contracted the AIDS virus from her', dentist, David Acer of Stuart, Fla., who pulled two of her teeth in December 1987 when he already had AIDS. He is believed to have infected at least five others patients. He died in 1990. : . . She reached a $1 million settle- . - ment last year with CNA Insurance Co., which provided Acer's malpractice insurance, and won a connden-, tial settlement from CIGNA Dental Health of Florida, the health-care -provider that referred her to Acer. Her attorney had been seeking at least $25 million. Miss Bergalis willed $10,000 to the Vero Beach AIDS Support Group, which hopes to buy or build a " home for AIDS victims, and $50,000 . to the University of Miami, where she was treated. A She left $140,000 to friends and relatives and the balance to her immediate family, r Her mother, Anna Bergalis, said she and her husband, George, plan to start giving money to AIDS research and to groups and politicians who will fight for mandatory AIDS testing of health-care workers. "We're going to start putting some money where our mouth is," she " said.

Donato said she last .saw her children in September 1984 when Chuck Smith and his father picked them up-for a visit. Smith then fled to Florida with the children, later traveling to England and Scotland. The children reportedly have been living in Mexico the last, three years and spending summers in Canada, Donato said. . If convicted, Smith could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison on . the state charge. ; j The boys areiexpected to testify at Thursday's hearings court officials said. A A Smith is the son of former Spring -car dealer Charles "Chick" Smith Sr. Mrs. Smith was awarded $53 mil-' lion in damages in a 1985 lawsuit against the elder Smith and -pther relatives of her ex -husband.
