Silent Auction for Shalom Garden Orphanage Thursday, Nov. 18


November 12, 2010 — A silent auction benefitting Kenyan orphans will be held Thursday, Nov. 18, from 4-7 p.m. in the Wyoming Union East Ballroom.

The University of Wyoming cross-cultural communication class is working closely with 25 children, all affected by HIV/AIDS, at the Shalom Garden Orphanage in Kenya, Africa. Every donation received at the auction will help to achieve their goal of $6,000. The money raised will purchase three to four water tanks and water purifying seeds for the orphanage.

None of the money raised will be used for salaries, bills, etc., says class instructor Tracey Patton, director of the African American and Diaspora Studies Program. Funds go directly to the water storage tanks and to the daily needs of the children.

For information, e-mail Mary Beth Wood at mwood15@uwyo.edu.
