$250,000 Donation to Red Cross

by HFPA September 7, 2005

The emergency donation, speedily approved by the HFPA's members, follows last January's $250,000 contribution made to four charitable organizations involved in the tsunami relief effort in Asia. Over the past two years, the HFPA has given more than $2,500,000 in financial grants and donations.

"Our members responded immediately to the call for help," said Philip Berk, HFPA President, "and we urge the Hollywood community and the public at large to do the same."
