Las Vegas Alea Chapter # 115 Raises Funds for IOCC Hurricane Relief

September 30, 2017

On Sunday, September 24, 2017, the Alea Chapter in Las Vegas, NV hosted an after church coffee at St. John the Baptist Church in Las Vegas. All of the proceeds were earmarked for the IOCC hurricane relief fund. The parish responded very generously, $500.00 was raised.

The Alea Chapter donated an additional $250.00, making a total of $750.00 sent to the IOCC for hurricane relief. The IOCC is always there to respond to people in need during natural disasters, which is why the Alea Chapter chose to partner with them to help people during difficult times.
