October 2014 – Latin Fiesta a Rousing Success!
On October 3rd, the entire SchoolBOX family congregated at the Civitan Hall for a fantastic evening of song, dance, great food and celebration. Over 200 people were on hand to meet Nicaraguan Operations Director, Ronald Chavarria, who had travelled all the way from Nicaragua. Ronald was all smiles as he met with previous volunteers and donors that evening.
The night featured fantastic latin music from ‘Azucar Jam’, salsa dancing lessons, a silent & live auction, and heart warming speeches from the SchoolBOX team.
This was the 9th edition of the Latin Fiesta and was organized by the Almonte Community. The night was a rousing success, as over $17,000 was raised that evening in support of SchoolBOX. This annual event is special for the SchoolBOX community, as it takes place where the organization started. Almonte holds a special place in our hearts.
The Latin Fiesta is so amazing because it reminds the entire SchoolBOX community on the organization’s humble beginnings and gives hope for success in the future.
A big thank you to Katie Cotnam, Willie Haliburton and the entire Latin Fiesta organizing committee for putting on such a stellar event.
