The mother of 9-year-old Juliana Ordaz, who is in hospice care for cancer, will hold a fundraiser Sunday to help raise money in hopes of carrying out her daughter's wishes to travel to Mexico.

The fundraiser will take place from noon to 6 p.m on Sunday in the community room of an apartment complex at 2559 E. Leland Road in Pittsburg. The apartment complex is across from Los Medanos College.

The event will sell $1 tickets that can be used to purchase Mexican hot chocolate, tacos, tamales and other Mexican food.

People who wish to make a financial contribution on behalf of Juliana's travel wish, can also contact Maria Rubio at the Salvation Army at 925-778-0808, ext. 11.
