Evening in Sudan' on Saturday, November 20 in Stanton, CA - IRUSA

STANTON, California (November 11, 2004) – Orange County-based non-profit,

Be the Cause, is sponsoring an “Evening in Sudan” to raise cultural and

humanitarian awareness, as well as donations to support relief efforts in the

war-torn region. Over 50,000 people have already died in the western region

of Darfur, and it is estimated that 350,000 people may die by mid-December

due to starvation and disease.

Coordinator Michele Benderra, says, that their goal is to present the crisis in

a “non-religious” and “non-political” manner.  “We hope to ‘build a bridge’ of

education, compassion, and inspiration between Orange County, California

and Darfur, Sudan.”

All proceeds will be split equally among three organizations – Islamic Relief

USA, a Burbank-based international relief and development organization,

Catholic Relief Services, and the Lost Boys of Sudan Education Fund. The

International Rescue Committee will also be accepting gently used clothing

and houseware items for refugees living in the Southern California area.
