November 2017 – ‘100th classroom’ Latin Fiesta was a success!
Our Latin Fiesta fundraiser was a smashing success this year, with over 150 people in attendance to salsa dance the night away, bid on our silent and live auction items, and help us raise money to build our 100th classroom at El Caracol School in 2018! SchoolBOX founders Ronald Chavarria and Jazmin Lopez came all the way from Nicaragua for the celebration, and were truly humbled to see so many familiar and new faces come out to support SchoolBOX.
The preliminary fundraising total is in, and we raised $20,000+ thanks to your huge generosity and support!
We would like to thank our sponsors, as well as each business and individual that donated items to our auctions, and of course the wonderful volunteer committee who spent countless hours preparing for the Fiesta. They went above and beyond in support of our mission to ‘Make Education Possible’ in Nicaragua, and it showed.
Here are some photos from the evening:
