Fight malaria, save lives at the PTS Net-A-Thon

Please join Peninsula Temple Sholom for an important activity: our first-ever Net-A-Thon, a fundraiser to send anti-malarial bed nets to save childrens' lives in Darfur.

The initiative is supported by more than 300 families and friends of Peninsula Temple Sholom. Participants will shoot baskets at a local gymnasium to raise money for the special bed nets, which cost $10 each, and which are needed into parts of the world where window screens are lacking. The special bed nets are treated with insecticide, and are one of the most cost-effective ways to prevent malaria transmission.

At the Net-A-Thon, participants will not only raise money to purchase anti-malaria bed nets, but also will write letters and cards of friendship and support to children in Darfur. The event is supported by Stanford University: Members of the Stanford Marching Band will be performing at the Net-A-Thon to entertain and inspire the participants.

The Peninsula Temple Sholom Net-A-Thon will take place at Nothing But Hoops, 1881 Rollins Road, Burlingame, Calif., on Sunday, April 6, 3:00-4:30 p.m. See more on the PTS Web site.
