2017 Global Village Annual Fundraiser!
June 3 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm$35
As we celebrate our 30th birthday this year, we are so honored and grateful to be a part of this community’s history of engaging in social and economic justice for the last 30 years. We are excited to continue working in Billings, contributing to the global fair trade mission and local educational initiatives. This year, we’ve already had the opportunity to host a well-attended screening of “Girl Rising”, and have plans for future community dialogue and exciting educational events later this year.
Our silent auction will begin at 5:00 along with no-host beer and wine, followed by hors d’oeuvres at 5:30, catered by Kreative Capers, including a delicious spread of fruits and cheese, marinated vegetables, and spring salad and festive tortilla bars. Cupcakes will be donated by Velvet Cravings!
The main event will begin at 6, and we are very pleased to have special guest Cathy Dowdell, the Board Chair of SERRV International, as our main speaker. Ms. Dowdell will be speaking on changes and growth in fair trade over the years, and will be sharing stories on the origins of three of her constant favorites from SERRV’s fairly traded line.
Event tickets are $35, available at Global Village. See our main page for store hours and address.
It seems ever more important to engage in the mission of fair trade and an understanding of all the ways fair economy affects social and environmental needs. We hope to see you at our annual fundraising event to show your support, have fun, and help us keep growing for the next 30 years!
