The Portland-Mutare Sister City Association held its “An Evening to Experience” on December 1, coinciding with the 2013 World AIDS day. The evening included an auction with the goal of raising money for the St. Werburgh’s primary school and health clinic. The auction raised over $16,000 for school fees, uniforms, and food for the school and a replacement ambulance for the clinic. One of the auction items was a meeting with Mayor Hales, to discuss whatever the auction winner wished. The winner of that auction item, Oregon Episcopal student Isabel Riddick met with Mayor Hales this morning.
