In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Rally for Haitian Earthquake Victims in Hollywood Sunday at 1:30 p.m.


January 14, 2010


My friends,
This is probably one of the most important emails I have written since I was elected Mayor of Hollywood. I do not need to tell you that Haiti, the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, was rocked by a horrific earthquake. The Red Cross estimates at least 50,000 innocent people have been killed. As you have surely seen on television, the island nation has been virtually destroyed.
I, along with community leaders and city staff, have organized a rally in the downtown Hollywood ArtsPark (a/k/a Hollywood Young Circle) on Sunday, January 17, 2010 at 1:30 p.m.

The purpose of this rally is to show that people in the tri-county area are united in their effort to assist the victims of this tragedy, and that the need to raise funds is greater than ever.
This is the only rally currently scheduled to occur in South Florida, and the victims of this earthquake need our help, now. This is South Florida's opportunity to show that we stand united with the victims and their families. Thank you for your time. I look forward to seeing you this Sunday.

Peter Bober
Mayor
City of Hollywood
