Earthquake Disaster Relief Event for Louisa County - NBC12 - WWBT - Richmond, VA News On Your Side

Earthquake Disaster Relief Event for Louisa County

A community event billed as "Louisa Cares . . . A Movement for Healing" is set for Friday, October 14, at the Louisa County Middle School athletic fields located at 1009 Davis Highway in Mineral. "Louisa Cares" is a citizen-driven fundraising event to assist the local schools and community recover and rebuild as a result of the August 23 earthquake. 

Opening ceremonies will get the festivities started promptly at 6:00 p.m.   Mineral will resonate with a varied lineup of live musical entertainment, family fun activities, prizes, concessions and a spirit of unity as individuals, businesses, civic clubs, and churches come together to generate moral and financial support for Louisa's public schools and for families whose homes have been damaged or destroyed by the quake. "Louisa Cares" will close with a spectacular fireworks display at the stroke of midnight. 

All proceeds of "Louisa Cares" activities are to be shared by the Louisa Education Foundation and the Louisa Housing Foundation.    Representatives of each organization will also be on hand to accept tax deductible donations to their respective "Disaster Relief" funds.

Please join in the fun and fundraising for earthquake relief and healing at the Louisa Middle School on Friday, October 14.    It's a "bye" night for the Lions, so make it your family's alternative to Friday night football in Louisa!   There is no admission charge, but donations to the Education and/or Housing Foundations are welcome.
