Letters to the Editor

Thanks, Falcons

We commend the Fresno Falcons for the amount of fundraising they do for community organizations, such as the $17,000 they recently raised for pediatric cancer research and their current freeze relief pledge drive.

Recently the Falcons helped the Wilson Middle School Music Department raise money to send 120 band and choir students to a recording studio workshop in Disneyland this May. We thank them for their generosity.

For this event, the Falcons invited the Wilson Jazz Band to play before the March 16 game. In addition, music students presold game tickets and held a drawing at the game. The Falcons even donated autographed Falcons merchandise for the drawing.

The students really enjoyed the experience and we raised approximately $1,500. We are still about $1,000 short, but will try to raise this remaining money through private donations. Anyone wishing more information can call 592-9515.

We thank the individuals who purchased drawing tickets and the businesses that donated prizes, and a big thanks to the Fresno Falcons!
