More event information

On Thursday, April 13, TLU’s chapter of Water to Thrive will be hosting their 13th Annual Benefit Dinner and Silent Auction at First United Methodist Church in downtown Seguin from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. Water to Thrive is a nonprofit organization that builds clean water wells in rural Ethiopia and Sierra Leon. TLU has had a relationship with Water to Thrive for twelve years and has successfully built eight wells in Africa. It costs $5,000 to build one well and each one serves about 500 people within the region.

The event will celebrate Ethiopian culture with a traditional Ethiopian dish and presentation before the silent auction featuring items provided by local Seguin businesses. There are several ways to assist in changing lives through Water to Thrive and contributors will be recognized at the event.
