FIESTA! Dar agua, dar vida – give water, give life!
Join the Water 1st community November 3 at Fremont Studios for a festive evening as we celebrate clean water and the lives it saves. Enjoy live Latin music, authentic foods, and a unique silent auction. Preview auction items and photos here.
Learn how water is changing the lives of people in Honduras through a short film shot on location. Executive Director Marla Smith-Nilson will share stories of the communities transformed by your generosity and care.
A small Live Auction will take place following the Water 1st program. We will be auctioning off the following four items: Private Dinner Party at Canlis, One-week Stay at a 15th-century Italian Villa, Two Beers Brewing Company/Beer Lovers & Beer Makers package, and a unique opportunity to travel to the beneficiary community of your choice on a Water 1st Trip. Preview auction items and photos here.
Stay for the “After-Party” to continue the celebration—with Latin music, dancing, conversation and traditional regional beverages.
Be part of our effort to transform lives around the world.
