Bulletin #20-14



July 25, 2014





Our Union’s community fundraiser to benefit Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation’s fight against childhood cancer is now taking place.  This year, due to Contract negotiations, will be a bit different, but the struggle to fight childhood cancer hasn’t changed.  There will be a Poker Tournament in Los Angeles (Locals 13, 63, and 94), a Walk and BBQ in Port Hueneme (Local 46) and a Walk and Car Show in San Francisco (Local 10).  We encourage all Brothers and Sisters to help and join the fun while contributing to this great cause.  In solidarity, we are all invited, welcomed and encouraged to attend the other areas’ events.  Get a group or party together.  Here is the info:



On Thursday, August 14, ILWU Locals 13, 63, and 94 will host our annual Texas Hold ‘em Poker Tournament at the Normandie Casino in Gardena.  Register in advance with Sidro Felix (13) at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 310. 972.9772. Register at 6:00.  Cards fly at 7:00 p.m.  First 100 Registrants get a free event t-shirt.  If you don’t play cards, we can still have a big impact by making an easy donation.  Please see instructions below.  This is our fundraiser.  Chip in a few bucks for the kids!



Members, family and friends can also have a fun time by participating in Local 46 Port Hueneme’s Walk for Alex on Saturday, August 9.  It will be great to see a lot of Local 13, 63 and 94 members supporting our charity and sister local.  This is a family fun event with food and music.  Get a group of friends together and spend the day doing something good for others.  Register for the walk.  A minimum donation of $25 per person gets you the walk, lemonade, lunch, live music, and an event t-shirt.  Please contact Brother Jesse Ramirez for more details at (805) 490-1678.  Call because Jessie needs your shirt size.



ILWU Local 10 will hold its Walk the Coast event in San Francisco on Saturday, August 2, 2014, starting with a “Walk for Alex” at 12:00 p.m., then BBQ and Car Show at 1:00 p.m.  All members of the ILWU family and the community are invited and encouraged to attend.  Donations to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation in the fight against childhood cancer will be taken at the event.
