 FOUNDATION WILL MATCH DONATIONS FOR HURRICANE RELIEF
 MADE TO SUN-SENTINEL CHARITIES FUND
 FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Aug. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Sun-Sentinel and the McCormick Tribune Foundation today began collecting donations for hurricane relief efforts. The foundation announced it will match all donations to its fund, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000.
 The Sun-Sentinel Charities Fund will use all proceeds and matching dollars to make grants to agencies helping hurricane victims in South Florida. All administrative costs for the fund and fund-raising are paid by the foundation and the Sun-Sentinel.
 Donations to the hurricane relief effort should be made by check or money order to the Sun-Sentinel Charities Fund, P.O. Box 407144, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. 33340-7144.
 "Those of us who live in Broward and Palm Beach counties shared the experience of Hurricane Andrew," said Sun-Sentinel Vice President and Director of Marketing Jim Smith. "But we were much luckier than those who live in Dade County. They are our neighbors, co-workers and, in many cases, family members, and we want to help."
 The Sun-Sentinel already established a drive to collect food, water and supplies for hurricane victims, mobilized employees to volunteer in stricken areas and donated advertising space to the American Red Cross and to other fund-raising efforts.
 The Orlando Sentinel, also a Tribune Company subsidiary, also has established a fund-raising effort. As with the Sun-Sentinel, the McCormick Tribune Foundation will match hurricane-relief donations to the Orlando Sentinel Charities Fund up to $100,000.
 The Sun-Sentinel Charities Fund is a fund of the Robert R. McCormick Tribune Foundation, whose principal office is at 435 N. Michigan Ave., Chicago, Ill. 60611. The Sun-Sentinel Charities Fund will provide support hurricane relief in South Florida. A copy of the office registration and financial information may be obtained from the Division of Consumer Services by calling toll-free 800-HELP-FLA (800-435-7352), within the state. Registration does not imply endorsement, approval or recommendation by the state.
