LM Fan Club @ AIDS WALK LA '99
Mrs. Sue Moore Hacienda HTs, CA
19 October 1999
Representatives from both the LA County and Orange County Chapters of the Luis Miguel International Fan Club proudly walked six miles (10 kilometers) as part of their fundraising efforts for AIDS WAlK LOS ANGELES '99. We all donated money through pledges. I collected $125. We proudly carried a big sign with plenty of LM pictures posted on it, gave away posters and answered lots of questions about "our guy". We got 'high fives' from other LM fans walking for other organizations like Kaiser Permanente Hospitals (Nurses like LM!), Toyota Corp. (Secretaries too!), Santa Monica City College (Italian exchange students, heh!), African American high school kids (Mariah Carey fans) and many others along the route. It was such fun and the best part was answering the other question, "Who is Luis Miguel?" We were NEVER at a loss for words and our only regret is that no one brought along a boombox so we could play LM as we walked all that distance. After all, in LM's case, a picture is not worth a thousand words...the sound of his voice is! Ah well! Next year! Why not plan to join us next year if you're in the Los Angeles area? We'd love to see some of our newsgroup buddies in person walking along with us for a good cause!
