Raising the Roof!

Thanks to the generous and hard work of Edd Hardey, and Loco Gringo message board regulars, we are well on our way to raising enough funds to finally put a roof on our outer buildings!! Ed has sparked a flurry of fundraising by generously offering to match any and all donations made through Loco Gringo sponsored fundraising for HB.

Generous LocoGringos have donated $1750 so far towards three new roofs at the library. This represents 36% of the $4,800 total to be raised and is a great start!

Money raised to date includes:
2/14 Pink Party : $314
Direct $ 2/16-24 : $475
2/23 Lol Ha party: $86

Total : $875 + matching funds = $1750!

How can you help? Four easy ways!

1. Sit down right now and write a check to "Hekab Be Biblioteca" and mail it to: Alice Gartell 906 W. 14th St. Tempe, Az 85281. Be sure to put "LG roof fund" in the memo field to insure that your funds are DOUBLED (but only until 3/28!).

2. Go to our favorite area of the 'Roo and see what Maggie does at this incredible library. Bring supplies and cash and be sure to tell her that you are a Loco Gringo! All Loco Gringo funds are DOUBLED.

3. Meet other Loco Gringos at one of the many parties at Lol HA, La Buena Vida, LOCOhio Extravaganza or PNW Locofest. Find friends that you never knew you had and give generously when they pass around the cooler to collect $ for the library. And yes, even these funds are DOUBLED.
** NEXT FUNDRAISING PARTY IS SUNDAY, MARCH 5TH ACADEMY AWARDS PARTY AT LOL-HA**
~JOIN US THERE IF YOU CAN, OR JOIN US IN SPIRIT BY SENDING YOUR CHECKS TO ALICE~
