Dear Fellow SLII Members and Friends,
Warm summer greetings from the officers and members of the Board of Southern Leyteno International, Inc.
Once again we will be hosting a “Dinner Dance and Halloween Party”. It will be held on Saturday, October 29,2011 from 6:30 PM to 12:00 AM at Avalon Banquets, 1905 East Higgins Road, Elk Grove Village, IL. 60007 (Tel. 847-439-5740).
We would like to invite you to come, enjoy and fellowship with our “kababayans” and friends and, at the same time, help finance the construction of a Two-Classroom School Building project to provide additional space for learning in our native Southern Leyte. Through your support, thus far, we have raised $7,000 and we need $13,000 more to meet our $20,000 goal to accomplish the project.
It is heartening to note that we have enjoyed the hard earned fruits of our labor in this adopted country, with our sharing heart, we have also sheltered and seated a number of school children back home seeking a better future through good education.
Donation tickets are available for the event. Advertisements are welcome for inclusion in our souvenir program. Please contact the Advertisement Chairman, Elm Jay 773-858-6845, Co-Chairman, Gabrina 708-769-8994, Secretary, Evelyn 773-814-9528. For added excitements, costumes are encouraged with prizes as well as a raffle drawing within the festivities.
In behalf of our organization, let me thank you for your invaluable support. May the Lord of the Harvest continue to abundantly bless you.
ORIEL M. CARILLO (SGD)
