The Honduras Ministry’s fifth annual Trivia Night fundraiser will be held at 5:30 p.m., February 24, 2018 at UUCC to benefit our Honduras work. The political situation in Honduras is dire. Due to strikes and political unrest, many doctors and nurses aren’t working and hospitals are closing. The health clinic in El Pital, where the UUCC Honduras Ministry offered Pap smears this past summer, is completely out of medicines and supplies even though there are still leishmaniasis cases. Recently there has been a respiratory illness affecting many people in the river valley. Funds raised at the Trivia Night will be used for clinic supplies and to support the microfinance group Adelante.
Tickets are $20, $15 for students. Tickets can be bought at the door or at the UU Church on Jan. 28, Feb. 4, 11 and 18.
The event will feature child care, good food, a silent auction, 50-50-raffles, a chili cook-off, and, of course, much trivia fun! Bring chili to share by 5:45 p.m. for a chance to win a beautiful Honduran bag!
