San Manuel Casino fundraiser to benefit Layette Project
The Council's Our Lady of the Angels District will hold a special fundraiser at San Manuel Casino in Highland on Friday, July 10 to benefit its Layette Project.
All participants need not worry about driving the crazy L.A. freeways, as everyone will enjoy the trip on a comfortable, air-conditioned bus. Each passenger also will be given $10 in cash at the casino.
There will be two boarding sites:
* St. Brigid Church, 5214 S. Western Ave., L.A., 90062 / 8 a.m. (departs at 8:30 a.m.)
* St. Vincent Church, 621 W. Adams, L.A., 90007 / 8:45 a.m. (departs at 9:15 a.m.) / NOTE: Entrance on Figueroa St., just north of the church
The bus will return at approximately 5:30 p.m. or 6 p.m. There is a $21 donation for this trip, which includes a tip for the bus driver.
If you are unable to attend this event but would still like to donate your tax-deductible gift to help this year's Layette Project, please make your check payable to OLA Society of St. Vincent de Paul, and send it to the attention of S. Coburn at 2190 W. 31st Street, L.A., CA 90018.
