I have had contact with a former resident of Gold River, some of you know her and some of you who are new to Gold River may not.  Laura Ramirez(LaLa) has asked for our help.  The Philippines are struggling during this pandemic and this is the request I received from Lala today.  

“DHROA means Dinadiawan Hotel and Restaurant Association I am the President, we have been packing food relief but I was overwhelmed of how many families need it.  I dont have enough and they are in my gate asking for rice but I don’t have no more to give.  My heart bleeds, I am asking help from the people of my community of Gold River to help. I will take video and Pictures of your donations to the hungry families Thank u so much”

I was thinking that I would try to fundraise for these people for the weekend.  If you have it in your heart to spare a couple bucks please send it to me and I will send her the full amount on Sunday.  

My email dawnarae2001 [at] gmail [dot] com for etransfer and I would be happy to come and pick up any donations here in Gold River.  You could call me at 250 203 6512

Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity

Take Care

    Nope scam. The money will go to Lala period.
    I know Lala. Charming and funny. Ran the Manila Grill in town. I have known her since 1985 while teaching in the Philippines. I would imagine that the pandemic has reduced her resort patrons to zero and she is in financial difficulty.
