Welcome to our 5th Annual Monterey Car Week Rally! Please join us for a spirited drive through the most beautiful back roads of the Monterey Peninsula. This event is open to all car makes and models. The rally will start at 11:30 a.m., we will drive up Carmel Valley for a wonderful scenic drive. We will conclude at the Baja Cantina Bar & Grill for lunch. We have decided that each year, we will ask for donations to support a cause or charity. This year we are starting out with our very own, The Chavez Family, to support their adoption of an aging out boy from Ukraine. We are asking for a minimum donation of $10 per vehicle participating in the rally. In Ukraine, children in orphanages are put out on the streets at age 16. Most all orphans in Ukraine have no chance at life. 60% of orphan girls will end up being sold into sex slavery, 70% of orphan boys will commit crimes, often doing so just to be put in jail so they can have shelter and food, 10% or more will commit suicide by age 18. Those who grow up in orphanages are marked as "wards of state" and this will show up on every document about them. When they apply for a job, they are less likely to get one due to the discrimination against hiring "wards of state." Same goes for college, they simply can't go. 40% of them will end up either drug addicts or alcoholics. 50% of them will end up developing HIV or TB. Ukraine ranks at one of the worst countries to be born in with only two countries being worse, Kenya and Nigeria. That means your better of being born in Pakistan or Iran, than Ukraine. Very eye opening. Adoption is very expensive and isn't for everyone but The Chavez Family believes though not everyone can adopt, we can all come together to HELP save a child, a life. If you'd like to make a larger tax deductible donation, please mail checks made out to Angels Haven Outreach at 818 Grayson Rd. Suite 200 Pleasant Hill, California 94523. In the memo line, please write for Sergey adoption. We can collect checks at event, or you can mail on your own. Lets come together and help get one less orphan off the streets!
