all the organizations that are helping and supporting these efforts.
Funds raised will be used to support scholarships, equipment and

support to the local schools and support for community programs at El
Rio Neighborhood Center, local churches, and assistance for the elderly.
We welcome you and cordially invite you to the Fiesta Grande Street
