“Cali-Cubans for Cuban Hurricane Relief” Benefit Part 1&2
The Cali Cubans for Cuba Hurricane Relief fundraiser, organized by the Law Offices of Georgianna Junco-Kelman in partnership with Friends of Caritas Cubana, seeks to raise vital funds to assist the rebuilding efforts of the Cuban people. Every dollar raised was earmarked exclusively for those who have been devastated by Hurricane Irma in Cuba.
Restaurateur and renowned Chef Frank Leon is the leading event sponsor who opened the doors of his Studio City restaurant Ceremony to host the event. The festivities included dinner, hosted cocktails, a cigar lounge, live music, dancing, entertainment, a fund the mission moment, and opportunity drawings.
Throughout this very special Cuban-inspired evening, guests enjoyed traditional Cuban rhythms by DJ David Gonzalez and Cuban Composer Carlos Jose Alvarez. .
“The impact of Hurricane Irma on the Cuban people has been particularly devastating, both in terms of immediate living conditions and longer-term rebuilding,” stated Consuelo Isaacson, President of Friends of Caritas Cubana. “Caritas in Cuba has an unimpeachable record of delivering services directly to those most in need, and Friends of Caritas Cubana is their largest worldwide donor. There simply is no better way to help those most impacted by the Hurricane.”
“I am grateful and honored to be a part of an incredible community of California Cubans who are coming forward with a generous spirit to help the people in our homeland of Cuba at a time of their greatest need,” stated Georgianna Junco-Kelman, attorney and creator of the Cali-Cubans For Cuba Hurricane Relief fundraiser.
