Global Visionaries to Host 10th Annual Fiesta de Guatemala Auction

On Saturday, May 14, Global Visionaries will host the Fiesta de Guatemala Auction Gala at South Seattle Community College’s Brockey Hall.  The event will serve as a fundraiser, through which we hope to raise $130,000 to support our programs.

We would like to extend an invitation to the entire GV community.

This year’s gala will include a gourmet meal prepared by the School of Culinary Arts at SCCC, live entertainment, complimentary beer, wine, and champagne, as well as both a silent and live auction.

All proceeds from the event will be used to build a school in Guatemala, fund reforestation projects, provide scholarships to 41 low-income youth, and support our leadership training program.

The local community has generously donated a wide range of items to be auctioned off. Among the many items to be included in the live auction are:

Global Visionaries Work Crew Day
Global Visionaries will bring a crew of six to your restoration project for a day of work and fun.
