Silent Auction from Ad Hoc

Memorial Committee for

Tom Power (*1959 – +2018)

December 14, 2018

Dear friends and supporters:

Tom Power, a generous and active supporter of various free the Cuban Five campaigns, in Toronto and in the U.S., passed away April, 2018, but we know he would be delighted to see his framed photos/pictures of Cuba and its revolution used in support of raising funds for Cuba.  His photos of Fidel, Che, Camilo and other leaders of the revolution are a historical treasure trove as well as books about Cuba that we would like to make available to persons who might be interested in them.

They will be available for silent auction at the 60th anniversary celebration of the revolution to take place at the
Steelworkers’ Hall, 25 Cecil Street, Toronto,
on Saturday, January 5, 2019. 
(See the CCFA calendar for details about the Jan. 5 event.)

 

For details of items that will be available contact Heide or  Lisa below

For details about the event event on January 5th see the CCFA Toronto Calendar.

In addition, also available to take home with you will be cartoons done by one of the Cuban Five, Gerardo Hernandez Nordelo, mounted by Mike Constable, and which were part of an art exhibit in the Rotunda of Toronto’s City Hall during the first International Festival of Poetry of Resistance.  There will also be CDs, 45’s, etc. all with content related to Cuba.

More than ever, we must unite in solidarity with the Cuban revolution.  One hundred per cent of the money raised will be passed on to a seniors’ home that Tom and Heide visited while in Holguin and to a hospital in Havana, both contributions will be made with the help of the good offices of the Cuban Institute of Friendship with the Peoples (ICAP). Donations in general would also be happily accepted so please bring your cash and/or your chequebooks with you as your interest in these items is sure to be piqued. All the money goes to Cuba and we are happy to make these items available for the celebrants of this momentous anniversary of the Cuban revolution! We look forward to seeing you there!

Yours in struggle, hasta la victoria siempre,

Ad Hoc Memoriam Committee for Tom Power
