Thanks for Supporting Curamericas at Hops for Hope 2016!
Posted: December 14, 2016
A huge thank you to everyone who supported and attended the 3rd annual Hops for Hope event on Giving Tuesday at Trophy Brewing! Because of your support, the event was a huge success. We raised over $15,000, nearly double the amount we raised last year! Donations from the event support our mission to provide Hope through Health and will be used to provide life-saving services and education for mothers and children in need around the world.
Highlights of the event were the silent auction, raffle table, food truck, DJ, and of course, craft beer.
We also heard from Execute Director Andrew Herrera, who explained about the mission of Curamericas Global and our local partner organizations abroad. “Our methodology, our specialized expertise, and our programming with a community-centered approach enables us to use donations, time, and resources in the most wise manner.”
Finally, Board Chair Rob Fields spoke about our Mom-a-Thon fundraiser. Mom-a-Thon is a virtual race to raise funds for health education and services in communities in Bolivia, Guatemala, Haiti, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Kenya. There are still 10 days left to participate! Join the “race” for just $26 at www.run.curamericas.org.
Photos were taken by Meredith College student, Shawnee Martinez. Find more photos of the event on our Facebook page.
