Many thanks for YIIN dinner

On March 16, the Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network held its second annual fundraising dinner at the Woodland Presbyterian Church. It was a sold-out event, and we raised more than $8,600. All of the proceeds of the event will be used to provide financial aid to young people who are eligible for short-term visas under the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program.

DACA allows young undocumented immigrants (ages 15 to 31) who were brought to the United States as children to apply for a visa that includes a work permit and protection from deportation for a two-year period. The fee for a DACA application is $465, an amount many eligible young people simply cannot afford. YIIN, working with local agencies, will identify and provide financial assistance to eligible DACA applicants living in Yolo County.

The success of the event depended on the work and support of many different groups and individuals. YIIN would like to thank the Woodland Presbyterian Church for allowing us to use its facilities; Mary Philip, Susan Trigilio and their wonderful crew of volunteer cooks for making a delicious Indian feast; the Folklorico Latino de Woodland; and Xavier, a DACA-eligible young man, who was our inspiring speaker.

We would also like to thank the Church and Society Commission of Davis Community Church, the Mexican American Concilio of Yolo County, and the Davis Odd Fellows for their generous financial support.

YIIN also thanks the following businesses and individuals who donated raffle and silent auction items: Aria Mediterranean Bistro, Bogle Winery, Cable Car Wash, Cache Creek Casino Resort, Carmen’s Notary and Tax Services, Cindy Davis Photography, Creme de la Creme, Davis Food Co-op, de Luna Jewelers, Dos Coyotes Border Café, El Charro Mexican Restaurant & Bar, El Patio, Farm Fresh to You, First Northern Bank (Woodland), Kwan’s Framing, Mishkas Café and Tea House, Mondavi Center, nestware, Pacific Auction Company, Peet’s Coffee & Tea, Diana and Julie Quintero (Mary Kay Cosmetics), Rosario Tijeras Salon, Sacramento Coca-Cola Bottling Co., Seasons Restaurant and Bar, Taqueria Guadalajara (Davis), The Book Garden, The Paint Chip, The Water Shack, Tres Hermanas, The Woodland Public Library Rose Club, Yolo Family Resource Center and Mary McComb, who donated two handmade quilts.

In addition, volunteers from Woodland Presbyterian Church, the First Baptist Church of Davis, St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, the Davis Unitarian Universalist Church and the UCD Youth Empowerment Program provided valuable support at the dinner.

President, Yolo Interfaith Immigration Network
