Ricardo Torres, mortgage lender with Willowbend Mortgage will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. The hosting of this event will be the third year that the Women’s Council of Realtors has chosen the partnership of WCR with the VCCC&HC with the Laugh Out Loud Comedy Night fundraiser. Director of Development Victoria Martinez Guerra, agreed that this was a good opportunity to enhance the services offered to patients and their families.  “The funds donated by the Women’s Council of Realtors will allow us to provide much needed support to those that we serve in several ways,” said Victoria Martinez Guerra. An Emergency Fund is set up to provide assistance, under special circumstances, to families who are dealing with an eviction and/or disconnection of utilities or other emergencies. The Patient Pantry is vital as this helps provide snacks to children when they are fasting for a procedure.

“We are asking for the support of the community and the Women’s Council of Realtors’ goal is to donate as much money as possible to make the lives of children a little easier as they  deal with cancer and blood related deceases,” said Grace Montalvo.  Please friend WCR at http://www.facebook.com/wcrmca
