The fundraiser will feature silent, live and cake auctions, live music and a cash call, where attendees may make public donations of support in an auction-like format.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m., with the silent auction beginning at 6 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m. and the live auction at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the dinner are $40 per person or $275 for a table for eight in advance, or $45 at the door. Advance reservations are due Sunday, Sept. 30.
All proceeds from the event will benefit MSU EWB students' volunteer-led work in rural western Kenya. Since 2004, more than 100 MSU students from many disciplines and majors have traveled to Khwisero, where they have built eight deep-water wells and 11 composting latrines in an effort to decrease the rate of waterborne illnesses. EWB's work also helps empower young students, especially girls, who are forced to spend hours each day collecting water for their families. As a result of the new wells, students spend less time walking to get water and more time in the classroom. Local support from the Gallatin Valley plays a direct role in the lives of community members in Khwisero, according to EWB leaders.
