“Hope for Haiti” Fundraising Event”

In the aftermath of a series of catastrophic earthquakes that struck Haiti on the afternoon of January 12, the American Red Cross mobilized immediately to provide the necessary resources to respond.  Locally many residents have already made donations through our local American Red Cross office or have requested additional information on how to make a monetary donation.    A “Hope for Haiti” fundraising event is being planned at Town Square in El Centro from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Thursday, February 4, 2010.   An afternoon of fun is planned – we will have food, refreshments, entertainment featuring local artists and musicians, games and lots of  prizes!       To assist us in this worthy fundraising event we are counting on your support.  A  tax deductible donation will be much appreciated and will secure the success of the event.  Please help us deliver “Hope for Haiti” by supporting this worthy fundraising event.    Community and Red Cross volunteers, including members from the SDSU – IV Campus Geology Class – Natural Disasters, will be on hand to accept monetary donations in the form of cash or checks.  Checks should be made payable to the American Red Cross with a designation to Haiti Relief.       Town Square is located at 7th and Main Street in El Centro.  Those who arrive to the event can use the parking accessible off of Main and State Streets. You can also visit www.redcross.org for updates on this relief operation   Your contribution guarantees that the Imperial Valley will provide crucial support to those affected by the HAITI Earthquake.  Thank you in advance for your consideration.    IVSC Manager:         Sylvia Preciado (760) 352-4541 Ext 6221   Event Organizers:     Richard Brown Grace Conner Kevin Marty (760) 540-1180
