Alderman Pérez will speak during fundraiser to help disaster victims
Alderman José G. Pérez will be a guest speaker during a special event scheduled for Sunday to raise funds to help people adversely affected by floods, earthquakes, wildfires, tornadoes and other disasters.
The “Unity – Taking Care of Our Own” concert will take place Sunday, December 9 at The Wherehouse, 818 S. Water St. , from 2 p.m. – 9 p.m. There is a suggested donation of $10 to attend.
Alderman Pérez said all proceeds from the event will be donated to the American Red Cross for disaster relief. “As we know, the Red Cross has a long tradition of being there to help people pick up the pieces after a disaster strikes,” he said. “The event Sunday will benefit the Red Cross. If you are unable to attend, I ask that you please consider making a donation on your own to the American Red Cross.”
