Hello again friends and family
💗Jhonathan Muñoz Angulo 💗

And bay area Cumbia family.

Many of you know that his father got sick last week unexpectedly and jhonathan had to drop everything and fly to Peru.

Unfortunately his father passed away and Jhonathan has been out there dealing with all that comes after the loss of a loved one, along with all his grief and pain.

He will be gone for another couple weeks and the financial stress from losing work for so long is a lot to add on top of his mourning.

He has a child support payment to cover, car payment, rent and miscellaneous bills to cover.

I would feel so happy if we could raise at least $2000 all together to give him some financial relief and for his mind to focus on processing and spending quality time with his family, rather than being constantly stressed about the consequences of not working.

Out of an initial idea to organize a raffle to support him, we came together and decided to organize a benefit brunch/lake party.

I recently learned through beloved friends of Jhonathan who knew his dad about Peruvian “polladas,” parties thrown in Peru in order to raise funds whenever someone is in need because of emergency situations or simply has fallen behind with bills and obligations. These friends told us about meeting Jhonathan at one of these polladas, which his dad used to throw at his home to support fundraising for community members in need.
I believe this would be a very sweet way to both honor his father’s memory and to show Jhonathan how much his community and California family loves him.
