Thirst Project

For the last five years This Club Saves Lives has hosted a Thirst Gala at Carmel High School and have raised over $15,000. The goal was to raise awareness and money about the world water crisis and an organization called Thirst Project.


With the help from the Singer/Songwriters Club we held our first Carmel High School Virtual Thirst Gala on Friday, December 11 at 6pm. You can watch on YouTube and PadreTV!


Our gala had been a dinner where the staff served the students a delicious dinner of pasta, salad and dessert. As the event has evolved, we decided to move the gala to MEarth and invite the community. We will still be serving pasta, salad, and dessert but will be using the outdoor pizza oven for flatbread. We hope this event attracts more people with a goal of 300 (double what we get when it is only students). The evening ends with a concert by the Carmel High School singers/songwriters guild.

Thank you to our sponsors: Taylor Farms, Safeway, Nicole’s Catering, Sarah LaCasse Catering, Gusto’s Pasta & Pizza, Vesuvio, and Pasta Palate. 

Thirst Project is the world’s leading youth water activism organization. 

Their mission is simple: Build a socially-conscious generation of young people who END the global water crisis. They do this by educating students about it and activating them to rock the clean water cause & build real water projects all over the world. Why Water? Health and Sanitation: Waterborne diseases kill more children every single year than AIDS, Malaria, and all world violence combined. Small children typically do not have strong enough immune systems to fight diseases like cholera, dysentery, or schistosomiasis.
