Join the Minneapolis Uptown Rotary Club for a wine and cheese tasting event to assist Haiti Outreach in its ongoing mission to develop and improve infrastructure in Haiti.
It’s been five years since the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, and the nation has faced additional challenges with cholera and hurricanes. The children of the country need our ongoing support, now more than ever. On April 17th, you have a chance to make a difference, while enjoying culinary and beverage delights, plus a fun silent auction and the ever popular wine raffle, at the Minikahda Club in Minneapolis.
The money raised that evening will support the Adopt-a-Well fundraising efforts of 13 year old Brett Schoppert. Brett lives in Minneapolis and is an 8th grade student at Breck School. Last Fall, he committed to raising the funds for a community managed well in Haiti with Haiti Outreach. He surpassed the goal of raising $15,000 for one well and is now dedicating his efforts to raise funds for a second well, in honor of his grandfather who recently passed away. The Minneapolis Uptown Rotary Club has agreed to help put Brett “over the top” in his fundraising goal, and he will be present with his family to talk about his commitment to clean water for the people of Haiti.
Haiti Outreach is currently working with the people and government of Haiti to develop numerous new community managed water wells and permanent infrastructure, and this event is one of many steps that are being taken by local, national and international Rotary Clubs to raise funds to support clean water projects in Haiti, which are community managed for sustainability. This project is one of many undertaken by Haiti Outreach, which implements sustainable infrastructure and locally-supported programs that create long-term improvements to the availability of clean water and education.
