Welcome to the Hallie Q. Brown Community Center Website
April 5, 2013
Dear Friends of Hallie Q. Brown Community Center,
Be A Hero with a Click of a Button!
There's just 12 hours left to donate to the March Campaign and Professor Poverty & the forces of H.U.N.G.E.R. will do anything to stop Hallie's Heroes! But you can help. Just donate before Midnight on April 5th and your tax deductible donation will be matched by Minnesota FoodShare and the Feinstein Foundation. Just click the button below and your donation will go three times as far!
But if you miss the Midnight deadline, you can still help out, because the Feinstein Foundation is matching all monetary contributions through the end of April for the Food Shelf. So click the button, and be a hero!
All Good Things Come To An End
And so does the March Campaign. April 5th is the last day to donate to the March Campaign and then it will be over...until next year that is. But the fun doesn't have to end there. Join us again on April 13th from 12-3pm at Hallie Q. Brown Ccmmunity Center for the our end of the March Campaign Celebration and the inaugural HungerCon! We're turning our traditional end of the Campaign event into a Hero "mini-con",featuring games, a costume contests, prizes, March Campaign results and more, including the premiere of the final 2013 March Campaign Video: Behind the H.U.N.G.E.R. The Rise and Fall of Professor Poverty. Click on the link below to find more details at www.hungercon.org. And click here for a PDF flyer to share with your friends.

Rescheduled - An Evening With Wenso Ashby
We were very excited to invite you out for an evening of music and fun with Wenso Ashby at a fundraiser for our Center and the Food Shelf. However, with all of the events and activities going on in the month of April, we decided it just wouldn't be fair to the month of May. So we have decided to "spread the love" and reschedule the fundraiser from April to May. Watch for more information in our e-Newsletter and here.
And if you don't know about Wenso, he is a local and nationally reknowned songwriter, producer, and keyboardist best known for his rhythmic inventiveness and collective improvisation, specifically with Contemporary Jazz with Soul. Wenso has been a friend of Hallie's for years and the musician at our Annual Gala. You can check out Wenso's site by clicking here.
We look forward to seeing you around the New Hallie Q.
