Congo: Continue the Story benefit gala for Giving Back to Africa, September 5

The Clubhouse at the Fields, in Bloomington, is the place to be on Thursday, September 5th at 6:30 p.m.. We are excited to be collaborating with fashion blogger Jessica Quirk, of What I Wore, in order to bring you hand-picked fabrics and handcrafted clothing straight from Congo. One World Events & Catering is providing a delicious dinner fueled by seasonal and local ingredients, and we will also be serving beer from Cutters, which was founded in Bloomington, and Salt Creek Brewery, located in Bedford. Additionally, we are thrilled that Twin H Tree Farm and Nursery will be decorating with us again this year!

During the program, Project Manager Dr. Jerry Kindomba will speak with us, and we will hear from Morgan Scherer and other friends. We are hosting an auction as well, which will include "mystery" boxes, trinkets and treasures from the US and Congo, and special products and services from local Bloomington shops. All proceeds will go to continuing to support our students and teachers in DR Congo. Seats are limited, so register now!

Congo: Continue the Story celebrates stories and relives the highlights and accomplishments of the year. We will have the opportunity to share our stories with you, and we hope that by your attendance, you can share your story with us, too.
