Saturday Fundraiser For ATRAVES

Work Across BordersFrom Brady Duklee:

The US side of the Nicaraguan organization ATRAVES (for Asociación TransAmericana de Voluntarios En Solidaridad in Spanish) is proudly based here in Providence, at co-founder Brady Dunklee’s home in Washington Park. ATRAVES works in health, education and development by supporting community-led initiatives in Nicaragua with resources and volunteers– volunteers like you, perhaps?

Come find out. This Saturday from 7:00 – 10:00, ATRAVES is having a benefit dinner featuring homemade Nicaraguan food: indio viejo, gallo pinto, tostones and more… as well as beer and wine, and possibly some Flor de Caña for sale. There will also be a silent auction of beautiful pottery made by artisans ATRAVES works with in San Juan de Oriente, a video call to shout-out the simultaneous party in Managua, and opportunities to learn more about their work.

They are asking for $20 or what you can pay for dinner / $10 or what you can pay if you’re not eating. Brady also asks that you send a quick RSVP to him at beto [at] atraves [dot] org, just so he can be sure there’s enough food for you. It’s a low-key, casual thing at his apartment at 146 Verndale Avenue, Providence RI 02905, and all are welcome. www.atraves.org is the website, and funds are helping their efforts to build a small clinic and health education center in an extremely impoverished neighborhood of Managua.
