In light of the terrible fire tragedy that has displaced thousands of Southern California families, the Los Angeles Dodgers have partnered with KCBS2/KCAL9 to have a day-long fundraiser at Dodger Stadium tomorrow, Friday, October 26th and Monday, October 29th from 5:00AM to 11:00PM. All monies collected will go to the American Red Cross to aid in their humanitarian efforts towards this disaster.
The fundraising location will be inside of our Sunset Avenue Gate (located at Stadium Way/Elysian Park Avenue). Set-up will commence at approx 3:00AM with vehicles being allowed to line-up starting at approx 4:30AM. Prospective donors will drive up into the Stadium, make their donations and then circle back out of the property. The event will also have live television and radio remotes taking place, also from inside the property.
Finally, if anyone is interested in generously donating their time to help staff the donation booths during the day, please contact Noel E. Pallais at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323.224.1466 with your availability.
The Militant certainly admires the organization's generosity in staging this event, but our air is already fux0red up as it is this week. Can't they set up donation booths in more pedestrian- or transit- friendly locations as well (apparently four Stater Bros. markets are also donation centers, but they're all located in the even more auto-centric boonies anyway - and isn't that the reason why people lost their homes in the first place, because of exurban sprawl)?
