Dancing, shopping, and eating African-inspired food is how the campus community can help send nursing student’s to Africa to promote important health initiatives.
On Saturday, November 23 at 6 p.m. at the Laurel Packing House a group of fourth-year year nursing students will host the annual Global Gala fundraiser. It includes an African-inspired meal, dancing, live band, cash bar, silent auction, and short presentations by previous students.
Money raised at the event will allow for the purchase of healthcare supplies that will accompany the student’s going to Ghana, Zambia, and India.
The students are paying for their own travel fees, so 100 per cent of the funds will go towards improving healthcare.
Tickets to the Global Gala are $50 each or $375 for a table of eight and are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 250-874-0784.
