Bruce Stephens Fundraiser!

Hello Friends and Family!

As many of you know my Father, Bruce Stephens was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer. Although he was able to successfully undergo surgery to remove the tumor on his Pancreas, he still has a long road ahead of him which includes months of chemotherapy and possibly some radiation. To show our love and support for Swami Bruce and to help my parents with some of the costs one incurs while dealing with a debilitating disease, we are planning a fundraiser. I wanted to send out this message so all of you can keep the date of June 9th available to celebrate my dad's continued recovery. We are planning on having the fundraiser at the Pannikin in Leucadia from 7pm - 9:30ish. There will be food, raffle, beer, wine, music, poetry, art and more! All proceeds will benefit the Bruce Stephens' Fundraiser.

If you or anyone you know would like to help us with the fundraiser let us know. Currently these are the items we need...

-Help at the fundraiser (selling tickets, helping with food, setting up, breaking down)
-Donations of items to raffle off (gift certificates, etc.)
-Banquet Tables to set food and drink on
-Taps for kegs (we'll have Stone Beer yum!)
- $$ donations to use to purchase or rent items for the event (tables, tablecloths, plates, cups, etc.)

You can email or call me or Elena Burgeno-Berman if you or anyone you know would like to help.
(760) 815-2708
(760) 943-7981

If you can't attend the fundraiser and you or anyone you know would like donate or stay up to date with Bruce's recovery can do so here.

Thank you so much. With your help and community support we can get my Father through this!

Much Love,

Carmen Stephens
