Buffalo for Mexico
Special thanks goes to the dynamic Amanda and John and Himalayan Institute Buffalo who sponsored the event, provided the space, food and supplies. They even provided accommodations for the VIDA team. Muchas Gracias!
Himalayan Institute Humanitarian Projects Manager, Jeff Abella, presented the new VIDA documentary (coming soon to the web).
Jeff addressed the group to talk about the importance of taking action for a worthy cause and the relevance of speaking out about the causes that are important to you. This simple dinner event raised the funds necessary to sponsor 30 people in the VIDA program for a full year!
The menu for this benefit dinner included fresh guacamole with chips, homemade burritos and a special treat for dessert, Tres Leches Cake. Find these recipes here!
Dave Bauer and his team at Sustainable Earth Solutions also joined the benefit. They provided insight on how their organization has joined the team to support VIDA in Mexico this January.
Host your own benefit dinner.
We often hear that many folks want to support our projects but aren’t sure how. Well, why not host a benefit dinner? It is a lovely way to entertain friends, promote a worthy cause, discuss the issues you care about and raise the funds needed to support families in the VIDA program. Give it a try, organize a dinner now!
