Water For People Gala Set for February 9th

By Lindsay Wochnick 0 Comments

Water For People logoThe Northwest Oregon Sub-section of Water For People invites you to support its 7th Annual Gala Celebration at 6:00 pm on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at the Scottish Rite Center, located at 1512 SW Morrison, Portland, Oregon. 

People who live without a dependable source of safe drinking water face some tough odds. Every day, more than 6,000 people die from water-related illnesses - nearly 2 million each year - and most of them are young children. Most of these people live in poor and developing countries that lack adequate sanitation facilities. This health crisis can be solved – but it takes champions.

Event detailsWater For People, a non-profit organization, is a champion for people in developing countries – helping them help themselves by implementing simple, affordable water and sanitation solutions to meet the needs of their community.

The Gala Celebration features a hosted cocktail hour, international buffet, music, art show and keynote speaker Ned Breslin, CEO of Water for People.  Proceeds from this event go directly to Water For People, so your contribution will have a significant impact on the lives of impoverished people worldwide.

To learn more or to purchase tickets for $50.00 each, please contact Carla Ralston at (503) 577-1220.
