RIDE FOR HURRICANE RELIEF!

News release
For immediate use
August 31, 2005

Help the hurricane victims by riding a streetcar??
YES!! YOU CAN!

On Monday, September 5th, you can help those on the Gulf Coast by sitting around!
The McKinney Avenue Trolley has been running in Uptown Dallas since 1989. Not since then has McKinney Avenue seen FIVE STREETCARS RUNNING AT ONCE. Monday, September 5th, you’ll be able to see this historic event–AND HELP THOSE DEVISTATED BY HURRICANE KATRINA AT THE SAME TIME.
All money donated in the fareboxes that day will be sent to the American Red Cross to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Use your Labor Day holiday for good. Take a ride on the trolley from 10 AM to 10 PM and put some money in the farebox to help those in need. Checks can be made out to MATA, or we will accept cash as usual. At the end of the day, all money will be counted and MATA will write a check to the American Red Cross. 100% of the money donated on Monday will go directly to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.
To the Media: We are available to do live shots or taped segments featuring a streetcar leading up to this event. We can also do interviews for radio or print media. Please call to arrange this for any day leading up to the event–even Monday morning!
