GulfCoast Benefit in San Jose

San Jose Gulf Coast Benefit

You’ve heard how stricken the people of New Orleans have been. 5 Years after Katrina and now the BP oil spill has devastated the economy again. So what to do?

You can start by attending the CitzenGulf benefit August 25 at San Jose’s Poor House Bistro.

Citizen Effect’s CitizenGulf project will become a National Day of Action on August 25th, in alignment with the week of the fifth anniversary of Katrina. The benefit — to be promoted by Gulf Coast Benefit — seeks to help fishing families find a new, more sustainable future by providing education resources for their children.

All ticket sales and donations from CitizenGulf Day of Action events will give families living in affected areas the extra support they need to get their children off to a great start this school year and to help ease stress on families with after school support services and activities.

The most vulnerable victims of the disaster are children. As part of our response to helping fishing families, Citizen Effect and Catholic Charities of New Orleans have created an education fund that will provide assistance to families in the form of school supplies and uniforms, as well as after school programming that includes tutoring and homework assistance, enrichment classes, recreational activities, and healthy snacks.

Get your tickets and show how San Jose cares!
