Student Fundraiser for Rescued Los Osos Girl

FROM: Doug Jenison, Principal, Baywood Elementary School

A fundraiser is planned by classmates of the 10-year-old Los Osos girl who survived being swept out to sea on Feb. 12. Fifth-grader Alanna Williams is still recovering at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara.

To help her family defray the medical costs, the Baywood Elementary school band is joining forces with the Baywood Choir to present a benefit in Williams’ honor.

A “Love for Alanna” benefit concert will be held on Tuesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. at the school gym. The suggested donation is $5 at the door.

Donations in any amount may also be made to the Alanna Williams Benefit Account at Mid-State Bank & Trust branches throughout the county.

"Alanna is our friend and a member of the school choir --  and her dad is our mailman," said Clayton Tacker, 11, one of the student organizers. "We know everyone wants to help, and what better way than through music."

For more information, call Baywood Elementary at 534-2856.
