Fundraising luncheon Saturday, October 20

The Pukalani-based nonprofit Somos Ohana Nicaragua will host a fundraising luncheon on Saturday, October 20, at Heritage Hall, 401 Baldwin Ave. in Paia from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. There will be typical Latin American foods, a silent auction and Nicaraguan craft sale, and live music. The N&B Band and Dr. Nat and friends will play Latin music for dancing while guests enjoy a lunch buffet and dessert table.

The event will help the group fund the third wing of the rural secondary school they have built at La Carreta in northwest Nicaragua. The first two wings house a computer lab and classrooms for 133 students studying a traditional curriculum, with many community members coming for computer classes after school hours. The third wing will include a library, a combined kitchen-dining room and facilities for preparing and storing the agricultural produce from the school gardens, made possible by the recent completion of a potable water well on the school grounds.

More information about the mission and work of Somos Ohana Nicaragua is at www.somosohananicaragua.org.

Luncheon tickets are $25 ($15 is deductible as a donation) and $10 for children between the ages of 3 and 9, available at the door or call 205-4067.
