The MSU chapter of Engineers Without Borders and the MSU One O'clock Jazz Lab Band will present "Every Body Wants to be a Cat," a swing dance featuring live music and professional dance lessons, Oct. 19. Lessons by Kerie Hagler start at 7 p.m. in the MSU SUB ballrooms. The music will begin at 8 p.m., featuring some of Bozeman's best Jazz musicians, including the Alan Faque Quartet and the MSU Jazz Band. Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for students with ID. All proceeds benefit the MSU Jazz Band and Engineers Without Borders and its goal of providing clean water and sanitation to rural Khwisero, Kenya.

Since 2005 EWB-MSU, a student led organization on the campus of MSU-Bozeman, has provided resources and expertise to provide schools and communities in Khwisero, Kenya with clean drinking water and sanitation. This work provides much needed protection against water-borne disease and allows many children, especially girls, the chance to receive an education instead of fetching water. To date ,EWB MSU has constructed five wells, four composting latrines and a biogas latrineand has worked on numerous other projects both in Khwisero and in the Gallatin Valley.

Proceeds from this event will go to facilitate further work including the construction of a distribution pipeline in December.
