Great News and Update from La Cuna!
Thank you all for your continued support in helping La Cuna provide loving and safe homes for Latino infants and toddlers of San Diego. Over the past year, we have made some great changes which have strengthened our ability to continue our services. Through a partnership with Chicano Federation, we have been able to reduce our overhead costs by almost 60% while continuing to provide the same level of services to children and families.
We are working diligently to promote our cause and to grow our organization, while at the same time, focusing on fundraising support. With the strong partnership with Chicano Federation, we are on a path to meet our mission to ensure that Latino foster infants and toddlers grow up safe, happy and healthy.
We invite you to come and learn about our changes and to participate in our upcoming fundraising event “Magic of Children” at 6:00 PM on Friday, April 1st, 2011 at the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and silent auctions. If you are unable to attend please feel free contribute by making a donation and / or participating in our silent auction.
We thank you in advance for your continuous support. For more information, visit http://www.lacuna.org.
