VANCOUVER - CANDENTE RESOURCE CORP. is organizing a fundraiser to help the victims of last week's violent earthquake in Peru. A boat cruise around the Vancouver harbour is scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 4, 2007, from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. The cost of $75 per person includes appetizers, and there will be a cash bar.
Readers who are unsure that help is needed in southern Peru should view the photos at www.candente.com/i/pdf/TerremotoenIca-Peru.pdf. They provide ample evidence that a disaster such as this leaves people impoverished to the point that they might never restore their lives without our help.
Please RSVP to [email protected]
