The Walla Walla University Chapter of Engineers Without Borders Hosts Fundraising Gala
By: Hilary Nieland
Walla Walla University’s Engineers Without Borders is presenting their fifth annual fundraising gala on Saturday, March 9 from 7-9 p.m. at the Walla Walla Country Club.
In previous years, the funds raised have benefitted EWB’s work in Honduras where they replaced a school building that had been irreparably damaged in an earthquake. This year, the money raised through the gala will promote their next international project which will be announced at the event.
The gala will feature dinner and a silent auction. After the announcement of the new project, guests will have the opportunity choose certain aspects of it to contribute to, such as materials and services.
Tickets are $40 per person and $280 per 8-person table if purchased before Feb. 25. After the 25th, the cost is $50 per person and $350 per 8-person table. Tickets will be sold through Thursday Feb. 28. For more information and to RSVP, go to ewb-wwu.org or call the WWU Engineering Department at (509) 527-2765.
