​​​​Fundraiser for Puerto Rico - Puerto Rico in Need! - 10/22/17

El Club Puertorriqueño de San Francisco would like to thank everyone for the tremendous outpouring of generosity and support for our "Puerto Rico in Need" fundraising event today.

We had hundreds of people streaming in all day from 2 to 8pm. Some people were so eager to donate, they were standing at our front door before 2pm. There were many proud Puerto Ricans in attendance, but also many, many, non Puerto Ricans who donated generously to this great cause. It was a huge success. Thank you to everyone for your support! We could not have done it without you!

After combining the totals from donations at the door, the bar, and for the food, we raised the total of $13,029 dollars!!! As announced previously, El Club Puertorriqueño de San Francisco will match the amount raised today with our maximum pledge of $10,000 dollars. Next week, we will have a Special Member's Only meeting to decide on the distribution of the funds. There are a number of organizations that we are considering. 100% of the money raised, plus our matching donation, will be distributed.

The amazing success of today's event would not have been possible without the generous support of all our great sponsors; from the great musicians from Conjunto Alegre, La Mixta Criolla, and Jerry Quiñones y su Combo Clasiko; to the awesome DJs, La Coqui, Mr Salsa, and Hector Rivera; to the superb Puerto Rican food from Sol Food in San Rafael; and several other individuals who contributed to the event.

And last but not least, we would like to give a special thanks to all of our Club Members and Volunteers who so graciously worked tirelessly to prepare the hall and work the event.

In closing, on behalf of our brothers and sisters in Puerto Rico and Mexico who are in great need of assistance, thank you, thank you, thank you.

​​​​​Fundraiser for Puerto Rico - Puerto Rico in Need! - UPDATE - 12/08/17

Our Fundraiser-Dance was a huge success, thanks to the hard work of all our club members-volunteers and the great generosity of our attendees and sponsors; including musicians.  As promised, we had a meeting, October 29, 2017, to decide how to make use of this money.  During the meeting we reaffirmed the total amount raised at the Fundraiser-Dance was $13,216.  The Club Puertorriqueno de San Francisco will add $10,000 from its own account, to the $13,216; for a total of $23,216 as a result of this dance. Some more donations are still trickling in and its expected to reach a grand total around $25,000.  The first distributions of these funds will be as follows:
1. $5,000 will go to Jason Maddy and Warfighters-DRT a Veteran Group operating in Puerto Rico.  They are reaching many areas not being served by other operations and are delivering food, water & necessities.  This group is asking for delivery of goods/food or donations, so they may take these supplies to remote areas and deliver to victims in need. They are now working with Crisis Relief Team.  http://crisisreliefteam.org/2017/11/crt-joins-forces-with-warfighter-drt/
2. $5,000 is being donated to a group of Jewish volunteers from the Chabad of Puerto Rico.  This group has been delivering provisions to those in need, City & Countryside; also delivering to affected areas where poor people haven’t been reached. 
3.  $5,000 would be used by our President Al Ruiz on his mission to Puerto Rico. Al Ruiz was already traveling to Puerto Rico on Nov. 15, 2017, (all expenses paid by him) on a mission to help poor families repair their roofs; as far as money would allow.  He will  put together a team of volunteers towards this effort.  The membership decided to entrust Al Ruiz with $5,000; to further help that end of Puerto Rico’s recovery.  Al Ruiz will make an attempt to contact the veterans, and Jewish group on the Island to see their work first hand.
