1968 High School Walkouts Commemoration Fundraiser

I got this email the other day:

"You say menudo, I say pozole...!" We've got both!

Join us as the Committee to Commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the 1968 High School Walkouts sponsors a breakfast fundraiser to raise money for the upcoming Historic March and Unveiling of the Monument dedicated to the students who staged the 1968 "Blowouts'!

The offices of local officials like Councilmembers Jose Huizar and Ed Reyes, LA School Boardmembers Monica Garcia and Yoli Flores Aguilar, LA County Supervisor Gloria Molina, and State Senator Majority Leader Gloria Romero have all contributed generously to make Sal Castro's dream, of honoring the students, come true.

But we need your help! We are a small commiittee with limited funds and resources that is facing rising costs for this event to happen successfully. We therefore invite the community, students, families, businesses and friends to join us on Saturday, February 16, 2008 for breakfast fundraiser.

We will be serving delicious menudo or pozole, whichever you prefer, from 8:00am until 2:00pm. We are asking a donation of $5 per bowl; $6.50 with a drink or cafecito! Pan dulce will also be available. We are trying to get a Son Jarocho group to perform as well. So here's the 411:
