United World College-USA is hosting a community fundraiser for the Samaritan House from 5 to 9 p.m. on Saturday at the campus’ Montezuma Castle ballroom.
The evening will feature international cuisine, a cultural performance emceed by Sara Harris, special activities, and a silent auction. All proceeds will be donated to the local Samaritan House in support of its mission to provide food and shelter to people in the community.
Samaritan House plans for 2013 include the expansion of the new shelter facilities; support for this event will assist in this process.
Additionally, UWC-USA will present the following exemplary community members with the 2013 Good Samaritan Award: Sonya and Adam Berg, Barbara and Frank Casey, Ernest and Darlene Chavez, Vince and Vicki Howell, and Werner and Helen Muller. A UWC student who has demonstrated excellent commitment to service also will be honored.
Guests are asked to park at the UWC-USA Welcome Center. Shuttles will run every 10 minutes to the Castle between 4:45 p.m. to 7 p.m., and again after the show.
Tickets are $25 per person, $10 for children younger than 18 and are available for purchase at Tome on the Range, Tito’s Gallery, and Semilla Natural Foods. Sponsor packages available.
