We’re hosting a benefit for our good friend Felix, he is in need of some financial help. There will be a live auction for a couple of items at 5:00. The silent auction tables and raffle will close at 5:30. You don’t need to be present to win.
Here is his story:
I am trying to raise some money to cover legal fees against Homeland Security, in order to get my Social Security benefits, which I have paid into once as a self-employed man, and then again as an employee of my own business – my leather shop.
You can donate to my cause by mailing a check made out to Sarah Blackwell, and mail it to her at: 700 West Virginia Street, Suite 307, Milwaukee, WI 53204. Sarah is my defense lawyer, and she has been working pro bono for years, but my case is going to take a lot more additional research. Sarah will be at the event to talk address that and explain why my case is uniquely complicated.
I am counting on your support to help raise awareness for my cause — which is being denied the Social Security Benefits that I paid into during the last 51 years that I have held a job.
Even though my father came to this country after surviving 14 different Concentration Camps (see New York Times Article in the feed below, published in the 70s), I am not eligible to become an American Citizen because when I was in High School in 1967, an undercover policeman in Milwaukee gave me money to acquire $25 worth of marijuana. At that time, it was an offense that landed me in prison for four years. However, I received a pardon from the Governor which enabled me to leave two years early.
Anyways, that offense has followed me around my entire life, even though I am a law-abiding, stand-up citizen. As my friends and family, you know that better than anyone.
I am hoping that this party will be a wonderful mixture of old friends meeting new friends. Either way, we are going to make it fun!
I look forward to seeing you all at the end of June. I would be happy to answer any questions that you have on here, or in person at the party.
I look forward to celebrating my 65th Anniversary of Living in America with all of you.
