Sonoma County JACL held a successful Pancake Breakfast fundraiser on May 4th for Typhoon Haiyan Relief. Many volunteers, including friends from the Filipino community, and donations from Lita's Café in Santa Rosa, Neve Bros. Grower/Wholesale in Petaluma, and Gatti Nursery in Petaluma helped make the fundraiser a great success. Thank you to all who came out to support this worthy cause. Sonoma County JACL matched the funds raised, and almost $4500 is being sent to the Direct Relief organization for the Typhoon Haiyan victims.
