Healthcare workers union network to hold benefit for victims of Superstorm Sandy
For immediate release: 12/7/12 – The Communications Workers of America (CWA) District 1 Healthcare Coordinating Council (HCC), a network ofmore than 20 locals representing 15,000 healthcare workers in New York and New Jersey, is sponsoring a fundraiser in support of the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
The HCC members know that the worst devastation done by this storm occurred in New York and New Jersey and as healthcare workers, we continue to be concerned about the people who were affected, the very bad conditions that remain after all these weeks and the healthcare issues these people face. We are not all able to travel there and aid in the volunteer efforts, but our concern is real and we want to show our support in any way we can. Hence a fundraiser!
The event will be held on Friday, December 14 at the Sportmens’ Tavern, 326 Amherst St, Buffalo. Beginning at 5pm until 8:30pm. There will be live music by Five to One, a 50/50 raffle, a chinese auction and much more. Cover charge $5 with $2 going to Occupy Sandy relief efforts. The proceeds from the other fundraising activities will also be sent to Occupy Sandy.
Occupy Sandy has played a significant role in providing needed relief to those affected by this horrible act of nature. They have opened numerous hubs and distribution centers, transported people and needed supplies to those in need, they are providing meals to hundreds of folks who continue to have no other place to get a hot meal, they are assisting in the clean up efforts, and Occupy Sandy continues to be a constant that can be relied on for support through this most difficult of times.
We urge everyone to attend this important and fun event on Friday, December 14.
