More Information:
The Friends of Elysian Heights (FoEH) and the Echo Park Improvement Association (EPIA) are excited to present "Echo Park Stories & Enchiladas," a fundraiser to be held on May 7th, 2011 to benefit Elysian Heights Elementary School. FoEH is a group of school and community members that provide financial, material and volunteer support to Elysian Heights Elementary, an award-winning, Title I public K - 6th grade school in Echo Park. FoEH is committed to providing students with programs and opportunities that promote their academic and individual development and thanks the EPIA for sharing in this mission.
The funds realized from this event will directly support the Elysian Heights School & Community Garden. The school garden enhances the academic achievement of our students by having an outdoor classroom. School gardens improve performance in math, science, writing and social studies. They promote healthy lifestyles as well as an environmental stewardship ethic. The garden encourages community and social development and instills in students a real sense of place in our neighborhood. The school also has recently installed a new California Native Garden on campus which will also benefit from this fundraiser.
Community volunteers are welcome.  Please contact friendsofelysian@yahoo.com if you are interested in helping the day of the event or have something to donate to the silent auction, have an interesting Echo Park story you'd like to share, or if you have any questions about the event.  Join us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Friends-of-Elysian-Heights/192695677418182
FoEH and EPIA welcome you and we look forward to sharing a wonderful evening with you on the charming EHES campus.
