Hello Friends and Family,
As many of you already know, our beloved sister, Priscila Velasquez, was involved in a car accident on May 23rd. She is in stable condition at this time but is still in a coma. She is making progress every day, and while this is very promising, she still has a long way to go. Her road to recovery will be a long and arduous one. Because the costs associated with her injury are astronomical, Priscilla’s family and friends are holding a fundraiser on her behalf on June 27th at Rhodeside Grill. While she has health insurance, there are many other costs and bills to pay. Any donation in the form of gift certificates from your establishment would be greatly appreciated. We will raffle off these gift certificates during the course of the fundraiser in the hopes of raising money to ease the financial burden of her recovery.We greatly appreciate your donations and contributions. Please join us at Rhodeside Grill to help support Pricilla and her family during these arduous times; we look forward to seeing you there. Thank you for all your prayers and support,
Leo Salgaldo, Jessica Velasquez
