~ LAUGH FOR A CHANGE! ~ JUNE 1st ~ SEATTLE CREATIVE ARTS CTR ~ 7 PM ~
Everyone deserves a chance to get an education! It should be a universal right, right? But for many, it often comes at a very steep price…or not at all.
The students at Bellefonte Community College in Shillong, India are not “ordinary students” by American educational standards. These are students aged 15 to 40, primarily female, who have either failed out or dropped-out of high school. And they are all being given a rare and precious second chance at education!
Thanks to our friends from The U-Hungry? Cafe & Union Firehouse Grill , the group of people who brought the beauty of Mutual Aid and Food Relief to New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy, you now have an opportunity to help change a student’s life and have some fun at the same time. The next step in their journey is to make education a reality for people (especially young women) in India. They will even be traveling to the college this Fall to help build classrooms, teach, and share their experiences with us via blogs, videos and photos.
100% of the proceeds from this event will go towards building classrooms in Shillong at Bellefonte Community College. Tickets are still available for LAUGH FOR A CHANGE, a fundraising party on JUNE 1st at Seattle Creative Arts Center. Tickets include Food, Drinks, Friends, Fun, Live Entertainment & an Auction, too!
