The East County Community Action Coalition (ECCAC) is sponsoring a fundraiser on Saturday, May 30, 2009 from 11-4 pm at Hazy Meadow Ranch in Lakeside, CA. This is an all-county event that will feature live music, raffle, opportunity drawing, carnvial games, pony rides, and more. The organization seeks public help to fund legal action to "sunset" Sunrise Powerlink.
The ECCAC is a not-for-profit public benefit corporation which filed an appeal against the approval of the Sunrise Powerlink in March, and is preparing for federal court. ECCAC opposes powerlink because of the high and unmitigable fire dangers that the project poses, according to the state's environmental impact. ECCAC also opposes the project because of concerns over environmental damage, health issues, and other issues. All proceeds from the event will go towards the legal fees of the ECCAC for the Stop the Sunrise Powerlink campaign. Donations of raffle items and for the opportunity drawing are also being sought. Tickets are $5, and can be purchased in advance by contacting Pam at 619-442-5354 or from ECCAC, 13465 Camino Canada, Ste. 106-PMB 256, El Cajon, CA 92010 For more information, visit http://www.eastcountyaction.org/.
