(June 27, 2012; Pasadena, Calif.) — El Cholo Cafe at Paseo Colorado will host a fundraiser for Five Acres, an Altadena-based child and family services agency all day on Wednesday, July 18. Twenty percent of the check total of patrons with an event flyer will go directly to Five Acres, to benefit the children’s summer activities fund.

“It is an honor to support an organization that has played a major role in our
community for over 124 years,” said Blair Salisbury, owner of El Cholo Cafe.

Since its inception in 1888 as one of Los Angeles County’s first orphanages, Five Acres has never wavered from its commitment to protecting vulnerable children over its 124 year history. Today, Five Acres promotes safety, well-being and permanency for children and their families by building on their strengths and empowering them within communities. Through residential care and education, mental health services in homes and schools, foster care and adoptions, and domestic violence prevention, Five Acres’ programs and services touch the lives of nearly 5,000 children and their families each year.

For more information about this event and to obtain a flyer, visit www.5acres.org or contact Jasmine Abghari at jabghari@5acres.org or 626-798-6793 ext. 2244.
