YOU CAN DONATE OR BUY TICKETS TO THIS EVENT BY CLICKING THE TICKETS BUTTON

It’s been over a month since hurricane Maria decimated the island of Puerto Rico and a staggering 80% of the population still doesn’t have power, with no access to clean water for another 35% of the people. Logistics there have been nothing short of a nightmare and a majority of the generous aid donated by those on the mainland, in the form of relief items, are not getting to where they are needed.

Our fellow American brothers and sisters are still in an extremely dire situation. Even though the official hurricane death toll is in the 50s, over 900 people have died after the tropical storm due to lack of necessities and to hospitals running out of medication and fuel for their generators, as they struggle to keep up with the “avalanche of patients that came after the hurricane,” as one journalist put it. Puerto Rico desperately needs help, and, since the most efficient way to help is with monetary donations, we’ve created this fundraiser.

Join us for a night of entertainment and hors d'oeuvres with live music by Eric Jiaju Lee. We will also be hosting a silent auction featuring Mr. Lee’s modern paintings.

Our featured speaker this evening will be Lilia Diaz, the Department Director of the nonprofit organization P.A.C.O., or Puertorriqueños Asociados for Community Organization. This agency has been helping the Hudson County community since 1970 and is now focusing relief efforts on Puerto Rico through the P.A.C.O. Hurricane Relief Fund, which was specifically set up to aid Puerto Rican hurricane victims. All funds will go to them.

Please help us help those in Puerto Rico.

For those of you who are not local and cannot attend, we ask that you please support the cause by clicking Donation on the ticket type and typing in whatever amount you choose. Your contributions are sincerely appreciated.
