On Friday, March 15th, we held our first major fundraising event at Orange Art Gallery. The event featured wine and cheese, Somerset Combo–a local jazz trio–a silent auction and a guest address from Joe Gunn, the Executive Director of Citizens for Public Justice.
At the fundraiser, we also officially announced the village our fundraising efforts will be going towards: Bandanpally, which is located in Andhra Pradesh. Stories about the people of Andhra Pradesh, and the projects we’ll be implementing, will be available on our website in the near future.
Sincere thanks to everyone who attended the fundraiser to show their support, and to all those who helped us behind the scenes with event planning and implementation.
A quick note about the Calgary fundraiser: Unfortunately, this event had to be rescheduled, but will still be happening in the near future. Keep your eye on our Facebook page for updates.
