Mission Honduras Gala

October 3rd, 2009
6:00 - 8:00 PM

Tulane Catholic Center
1037 Audubon St

A group of more than thirty Tulane students are on a mission, literally and figuratively, to raise over $15,000 by November 15 so construction can begin on two health clinics in the mountains of Honduras. The students are participating in Mission Honduras, an annual student-run service trip to San Pedro Sula and surrounding mountain villages.

Thirty-three students will travel to Honduras during the first week of January to help construct the health clinics which will serve seven small mountain villages that currently have no access to even the most basic health care. There is only one health clinic to serve the entire area. The clinics will provide the health care that the villagers desperately need. Mission Honduras is also raising funds to pay for medical supplies and the salaries of two nurses so that the health care will be free for the people.

Tickets are $20 for adults, $35 for couples, and $15 for students and include food, drinks, door prizes, even salsa lessons.

Thirty-three students will be departing New Orleans on December 30. For more information visit the Mission Honduras website.

To donate or contact, speak with Tim Rinaldi or visit the Mission Honduras website.
