Fundraiser a Huge Success ! October 23, 2011

On Saturday October 22 The Malawi Water Project organized a fundraising dinner and silent auction at the Thorncliffe Community Hall in Calgary, Alberta called “Creating Opportunities Africa”. The fundraiser was a huge success!

We had an amazing turnout with a lot of wonderful people at the event. We would like to sincerely thank all of our guests who attended “Creating Opportunities Africa” and supported the Malawi Water Project with your very generous donations, silent auction purchases and the raffle.

We would also especially like to thank all of our volunteers, our special guest MC Rick Castiglione, all of our live performers and all the various local companies and individuals who donated their products and services to our silent auction. Your contribution to this event has brought us even closer to our goal. Stay tuned to see photos from this action-packed event!
