CALEXICO — Maria Cristina Hermosillo Ramos, the president of Mexicali's Deserrallo Integral de la Familia, announced a new fund-raising effort for the children of Mexicali on Thursday.
Hermosillo Ramos, the daughter of Mexicali Mayor Victor Hermosillo Celada, took over the philanthropic work and the presidency of DIF after her mother died this year.
Her mother, also named Maria Cristina, founded DIF in 1999 to give homeless children of Mexicali a place to live and study and save them from lives begging on the streets.
Hermosillo Ramos said the new fund raiser would be a drawing. Those interested in contributing to her cause can call (011-52)-65-67-2720. Tickets for the drawing are 60 pesos.
