April 21 will mark one year since Isabel Celis went missing from her family’s home in Tucson, and supporters of the Celis family have organized a fundraiser this Sunday to further awareness of the fight to find her.

The “Bring Isa Home” event will be held this Sunday at the Peter Piper Pizza location across from the Park Place Mall, 5925 E. Broadway Blvd. The restaurant will donate 15 percent of their sales that day to the campaign to bring the 7-year-old home if you display this flyer, available on the event’s Facebook page. If you’re unable to make it to that Peter Piper Pizza location, the business will also accept the flyer at their other locations in town. Additional donations can also be made during the event to the Wells Fargo Bring Isa Home Account.

Described as a day of “safety and awareness,” the fundraiser will follow a 9:15 service at Saint Joseph Roman Catholic Church, 215 S. Craycroft Rd, and includes children’s activities like arts and crafts, finger painting, face painting and a balloon artist from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Local nonprofit Ben’s Bells will also make an appearance at the event, and children can be fingerprinted per their parent’s request during that time frame.

No leads have been announced in the recent months regarding Isabel’s case, but volunteers have planned the event to act as a day of hope and support for the ongoing investigation, but also as a day of appreciation for the relationships most important to them.

“I think people should look at their own kids and be thankful that they have (them), and realize that there’s a family out there still missing their daughter,” said Joe Vega, a close friend of the Celis family.

Anyone with information that could help bring Isabel home is urged to call 882-7463 or visit 88crime.org. Those wanting to learn more about Isabel and her case can also visit bringisahome.com for photos, news and donation information.
