Familia Latina Fundraiser

Nov 9, 2011

Pacific's staff and faculty organization Familia Latina de Pacific is sponsoring two fundraising activities in support of former staff member Henry Torres, whose youngest son, Dani, suffered major trauma as a result of a severe automobile accident in July. The accident happened just as Henry was in the process of transitioning from Pacific to a new position out of the country. Henry is currently taking care of Dani, who is in need of 24-hour care and assistance at Henry's home here in Stockton. Without employment, both of them face a rough road, as the accident has left Dani paralyzed from the chest down.

All proceeds are being donated directly to Henry and his family. If you would like to make a donation, order tamales, buy raffle tickets, or help the committee, please feel free to drop by Raymond Lodge. Cards and donations by check payable to Henry Torres may also be left at the Lodge.

Please note: All orders of tamales need to be made by Monday, November 14, at 3 p.m.  The tamales are $20 per dozen (chicken, pork or cheese with jalapeño).  All orders and payments may be made at Raymond Lodge. Orders will be ready for delivery on Friday, November 18, 2011. The raffle will continue until December 13, 2011.

If you have any questions, email current co-chairs, Lorena Becerra lbecerra@pacific.edu or Greg Rangel grangel@pacific.edu.
