Wine into Water Fundraiser

Hosts: Liz Specht, El Porvenir Board Member, and Timm Dobbins, El Porvenir Volunteer

We held a fundraiser last year to finish building a well in the small Nicaraguan village of La Jicara. We raised enough to finish the well, and the village loved having clean water for the first time! But then, an earthquake struck, and the water in the well drained away. El Porvenir is working with the village to see if a spring, far above the village, can be tapped and the water piped down to the village. But, that will take more money, and money is tight in Nicaragua right now. SO, we will not give up, but hold another fundraiser for the pipes to bring clean spring water to La Jicara.

Please join us Saturday, August 24th from 4 - 6 PM for a wine and cheese party with silent auction at the Church of St John the Evangelist, 1661 15th Street, San Francisco

(Valencia Street with some interesting restaurants is right around the corner for later.)
