Please join us on Saturday, Feb. 8, when I -House opens its doors for an evening of wine-tasting and a raffle for victims of the typhoon that hit the Philippines. It runs from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and tickets at $55 for one or $100 for two are available at the door.
Former Davis Mayor Ruth Asmundson is working on this event with I-House and Rotary:
“Just a little update on our project,” she said. “There are 10 Davis residents residents whose families reside in those devastated areas. The first phase of our goal is to help these families directly. We’ve already accomplished this phase by sending over 30 big relief boxes to them as well as given each of them funds to rebuild their homes. We’re now in our 2nd phase which is to help 4 communities, out of the 10, to help reestablish their livelihood (e.g. buy family fishing boats, start a co-op piggery, etc.) as well as help rebuild their schools. Very ambitious goal but I think we can do it.”
