As you probably know by now we’ve got a Puerto Rico evacuee fundraiser coming up on Sunday at the World Cafe Live. An exciting development on that front: we’ve got a band lined up for the event: Foto Rodriguez y Amigos. Here’s everything else you need to know:
WHO: Anyone who enjoys quizzo, live music, and helping people out.
WHAT: Puerto Rico Evacuee Fundraiser.
WHEN: Sunday, March 18th, at 5:30 p.m. (doors at 4:30).
WHERE: World Cafe Live (3025 Walnut Street)
WHY: Long story short: after Hurricane Maria, numerous families were evacuated to Philadelphia. Unfortunately, the city has run out of money to house them, and many have them have nothing to return to in Puerto Rico. So we are trying to raise some money to get them housed. Many of them are working in Philadelphia, but don’t have enough for first, last, and security. So that’s where we come in. I would really love to get 100 people out to this event so that we can help at least some of these families.
All of the money after paying for the room is going to the families in need. So I would request that you help me spread the word as much as possible.
WHAT IF I CAN’T PLAY? CAN I STILL HELP? Yes, there are a couple of ways you can help. You can donate to the cause, either by clicking here and filling out the form, Paypalling me at johnny at johnnygoodtimes.com (I’ll forward all of the money to Cheri Honkala, who runs P-PEHRC, the org trying to help out), or you can give me cash this week at quizzo, which I will them give to Cheri. You can also help if you have an extra, unused room in your home.
IS THERE AN EVENT PAGE ON FACEBOOK I CAN SHARE WITH FOLKS? Yes indeed. Please share.
WHERE DO I GET TICKETS? You can pick them up from me at quizzo this week, you can buy the online, or you can get them at the door.
WHAT IS MAX TEAM SIZE? Max team size in 8.
WHAT WILL THE QUIZ BE ABOUT? It will be a general knowledge quiz, but with a Puerto Rico twist.
