Betty Chinn came into the station earlier today to talk to Bayley about the Transitional Housing Fundraiser on Saturday, December 5 from 1 till 4 p.m. at St. Bernards Academy. Tickets are $20 and available at Picky, Picky Picky, Arcata Exchange, and the Betty Chinn Day Center. This event is hosted by the Knights of Columbus, Eureka Council 1067.
A bit more about the fundraiser from the flyer:
"Betty has committed to purchasing the building next door to her 7th and C Facility, from Builders Exchange, by the end of this year. It will be part of her continuing plan to transition people off the street and back into society. The new facility will house 14 families in transitional housing. It dovetrails perfectly with her existing Betty Kwan Chinn Day Center facility, where Betty and her staff help those in need overcome obstacles and integrate into society.
Builders Exchange has provided a generous selling price for the building and Betty has already raised the bulk of the funds, but she still needs $70,000. To help her achieve that goal, the Knights of Columbus, Eureka Council 1067 is throwing a party!
The event will feature local wines, cheeses and hors d'oeuvres, a live auction with Rex Bohn, a silent auction and live music with Mike Craghead. Tickets are $20 each.
For more information, contact Merle McDougall at 707-499-1597, or Frank Giacomini at 707-599-6843."
