|RE:||Balli Fund Raiser & BBQ - Thank You|
The Balli Fund Raiser & BBQ held on March 22, 2003 was a success.
Hector Cardenas and Eileen Fowler did an excellent job updating the
family and had one-on-one conversations with most of the people present.
We enjoyed music provided by family members Manuel Tamez and Rick Tamez
of Rio Grande Entertainment and from Jaime Gonzales. Proceeds from the
event will be used to fund the Balli family's litigation against the
Kenedy Memorial Foundation. Special thanks go out to Alicia Stewart
and her team for a job well done!
P.S. A new update to the "Ballis in the News" was recently
added to the BFH Web Site. The update is regarding a new book that recasts
history with an account of some forgotten BALLI women. Marina Pisano
from the San Antonio Express-News wrote the newspaper article.
