Fire relief benefits scheduled

Posted @ 3:56 PM

Local media outlets are lending a hand to raise money for San Diego's fire-relief effort. Here are some benefits in the works:

- Cox Communications and Channel 4 San Diego have teamed up with the San Diego Padres and the Fashion Valley Mall for a week-long donation drive. Today through Nov. 2, the public can drop off cash donations or checks payable to ARC-San Diego Wild Fires at the Fashion Valley Mall. Padres third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff will make an appearance tomorrow from noon to 2 p.m., and Channel 4's Sam the Cooking Guy will be on hand from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday. It all happens on the south side of the Fashion Valley Mall, near the Boudin Bakery. The hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily, except for Sunday, when the hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. All proceeds will go to the American Red Cross and the San Diego Foundation's fire-relief efforts.

- Radio stations XX Sports Radio (1090 AM and 105.7 FM) and San Diego 1700AM will host Mission Recovery, an on-air memorabilia auction and donation campaign to benefit the American Red Cross fire-victims fund. Auction items include tickets to the 2008 Super Bowl, vacation packages, signed memorabilia and a dinner for two with Pete Rose. The Mission Recovery effort started today and will run through Nov. 2.

- The KGB Halloween Blood Drive couldn't be happening at a better time. The grand-daddy of all blood drives will be held Tuesday at Dixieline in Kearny Mesa, 4888 Convoy Street. The drive runs from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

- Tuesday's 91X Concert From the Crypt will benefit the San Diego Foundation for Fire Relief Efforts. Local faves Louis XIV will headline the all-ages show, which has been moved to the House of Blues, 1055 Fifth Ave., downtown. Tickets can be purchased at the House of Blues on the day of the show only.

Here's something else that needs to be probed:


I wonder how many other companies are fascilitating these outrageous claims against how many other customers. These people just lost their home, and AT+T is billing them? Doesn't this situation fall under the "acts of god" clause where they CLEARLY had no control over what happened?

Wish Upon A Hero is a community based website that is ready to help California right now! They site is called www.wishuponahero.com. They have 2000 members from across the country and are ready to send supplies. The only problem is that the site is only 5 weeks old and not enough people in California are aware of it.
