We were able to raise around $50,000 (net after expenses) at the Fundraiser in Houston on December 3rd, 2016. I wish to thank all the HoustonDocs and LikeMinds who attended and made this a success. Special thanks to the Organizing Committee Drs. Basith Baig, Syed Arman Raza, Salman Arain, and Mr. Sohail Imtiaz for their help. It would not have been successful without an impressive presentation by Dr. Wajid Baig. Everyone had a good time and the feedback was good. All the money will go to our Pacemaker Bank fund without any administrative cost.
But we should not rest on our laurels. We should continue to make an effort to keep raising funds so that the project can continue. Most of the office bearers of APCNA are contributing atleast $1000 or more to the project (one pacemaker)
I personally urge all the members on this forum to do the same and take advantage of the tax deduction before Dec 31. The PACERTHON will go on this and next year.
Please either pay on line with credit card at apcna.net or send me a check at
6445 Belmont Street, Houston, Texas 77005 and I will make sure it goes securely to our CPA for recording and issuing you a receipt. Please mention if this is Zakat.
You can find more details about the project at the above website.
Please let us know on this forum if you have any questions.
Please forward this to your family and friends.
