Coming Soon: SchoolBOX Latin Fiesta on November 9th!

Join us on Saturday, November 9th at the Almonte Old Town Hall for the SchoolBOX annual Latin Fiesta.

You are invited to join the entire SchoolBOX family to celebrate a new milestone, the construction of the 111th classroom in Nicaragua, at the Old Town Hall in Almonte on November 9, 2019. SchoolBOX Nicaraguan Director Ronald Chavarria, will be making an appearance at this year’s Fiesta to thank everyone personally. We would love to see you all there!

As you all know, SchoolBOX has its roots in Almonte, as Tom Affleck started the organization with a pencil, a notebook and a dream. Through Tom & his wife Sarah’s efforts, along with hundreds of supporters in Almonte, and the Ottawa Valley, SchoolBOX has grown to support so many children.

Event Chair Parker Armstrong and many dedicated volunteers on the Fiesta Committee have put together an amazing evening for you all. There will be a silent auction with unique items from Nicaragua and around Almonte donated by local businesses, artists, and community members. A live auction will feature a luxury box to watch the Ottawa Senators and a trip to Costa Rica.
