HD Buttercup: Coffee Meets Water Fundraiser
September 24, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On Thursday, September 24, you’re invited to HD Buttercup at SOCO Collection for the Coffee Meets Water Fundraiser, which aims to provide clean water to the global communities who produce your morning cup of coffee. A majority of the world’s coffee-producing regions are located in developing countries without access to clean water or sanitation facilities. Good Neighbors, in partnership with SOCO Collection, will host a fundraising event to educate our local community about the dire clean water conditions in developing countries. SOCO eateries including Portola Coffee Lab, SusieCakes, and Bistro Papillote will cater the food and beverages for this event. Funds raised will directly support the community of Acatenango, Guatemala, one of the country’s main coffee-growing regions, by providing new water filtration systems for two schools where close to 400 students (the children of coffee farm workers in this community) do not have access to clean drinking water in their schools. For more information about the initiative and how you can help, please visit http://cmw-soco.eventbrite.com. Please note, this event is free to attend, but a suggested donation of $10 at the door is appreciated, which includes a free raffle ticket.
