We raised over $3,000 for the Thirst Project at our 3rd annual Thirst Gala. Over 150 students dined on amazing pasta, salad, bread, and sundaes served by the Carmel High School staff.
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.
A full jerrycan weighs 44 pounds.
