We are pleased to announce that our fundraising event, Night in Nicaragua, was a great success. Held at Monday Night Brewing in Atlanta, more than 120 people attended the event to learn more about how God is working through Rayo de Sol to transform lives every day.
A silent auction was held at the event, as well as sales of handmade Nicaraguan crafts, from the businesses that Rayo de Sol has supported over the past several years. Products from the women’s sewing business and also the recently formed bamboo business were available, with sales contributing to helping these businesses grow in the future.
The highlight of the evening was a performance by Christian comedian, Kenn Kington, who had the audience bellowing with laughter. His message, however, was also very poignant. We live in an era of endless choices and the choices we make every day determine how successful we are at following God’s plan for our lives.
Although we did not meet our goal of raising $50,000 for a matching opportunity, the event was highly successful. It was great to see so many friends, who have been loyal supporters for many years, as well as so many new faces. We are so grateful to everyone who participated in making it our best event to date.
