Gala to benefit WWU group's work in Honduras
WALLA WALLA - The Walla Walla University chapter of Engineers Without Borders announces its fourth annual Hope for Honduras Gala on April 29 at 6 p.m. at the Whitman College Reid Campus Center Ballroom.
The gala, benefiting children's education in Honduras, will feature catered food with a dash for dessert, live music performed by WWU students, plus live and silent auctions. Honduran hammocks and coffee, Melody Muffler metal creations, an Oregon Coast getaway and golf packages are just a few of the items that will be auctioned.
Recently, EWB-WWU has been working in Nueva Suyapa, a small town in the mountains of northwestern Honduras. The town's school classrooms were severely damaged in a major earthquake two years ago. Proceeds from the gala will go to build five new classrooms in Nueva Suyapa and 12 surrounding communities.
Friends of WWU and community members are invited to attend the Hope for Honduras event.
