Hello, my name is Isaac Alles. I recently put on a fundraiser with a couple of my friends to raise money for the Tarahumara Children's Hospital. We made tissue paper flowers which we sold in order to raise funds. You wrote and asked me to send a photo of our project. Here are a couple of pictures of us selling the flowers at our school, and one picture of the poster we made. Two of the photos were taken with an old cellphone, so their quality is not the best. My two friends' names are Aimee Bataglia and Meaghan Young.

The Detroit committee is pleased to announce the date for it's annual dinner dance fundraiser. This year the 48th Dinner Dance is being held on October 25, 2014. Information regarding this event is listed on the events page of this website. The committee looks forward to this event each year, because it allows connections with many friends not seen throughout the year and introduces us to new friends. The evening is packed with dinner, dancing, raffles, a silent auction and the chance to connect with friends helping children and many others with the mere necessities of life.
Imagine lives so impoverished that most of the community's children die before reaching the age of five. The children are part of a tribe of 60,000 Tarahumara Indians, who live in caves and primitive huts, with unsafe drinking water, parasites, and devastating malnutrition. Picture all this in an area of unsurpassed scenic beauty, with mountains and canyons and a rich cultural heritage - just hours from El Paso, Texas. This is the situation that Father Verplancken found when he came to Creel, Mexico in the early 1960's.
