Reservations are available now for the fourth annual Hope for Honduras Gala, benefiting the Engineers Without Borders elementary school projects in Honduras.
The event is 6-9 p.m. April 29 in the Young Ballroom, Reid Campus Center, Whitman College, 345 Boyer Ave.
The Hope for Honduras project this year aims to design and construct five new classrooms in the remote village of Nueva Suyapa. The current school facilities were severely damaged in an earthquake two years ago and the structure must soon be abandoned.
An eight-person Walla Walla University team limit ensures that the community is highly involved in the construction process and learns sustainable skills for future improvement in their town.
Auction items at the event include weekend vacation packages, artwork, Honduran artifacts, golf outings and more.
Reservations made before April 16 are $40 per person or $300 per eight-person table; regular ticket prices are $50 per person or $350 per eight-person table, sold through April 24.
