Spring Gala Planned for April 1

There’s still time to RSVP to Self-Help’s annual Spring Gala, back in person after a two year hiatus.

Mix and mingle with fellow attendees upon arrival and participate in the silent auction featuring handcrafted items from Ghanaian artisans along with some international treasures that were donated to Self-Help International by art collectors.

You’ll be treated to a buffet meal featuring smoked pork loin and stuffed chicken breast, oven roasted red potatoes, asparagus, salad and dessert. Vegetarian and gluten-free options will also be available upon request.

Buy raffle tickets to support the organization AND get first choice of prime desserts from specialty bakers! Everyone attendee will get a dessert. However, the table that buys the most raffle tickets will get first choice of which delightful dessert they are served. All proceeds support Self-Help International’s work to alleviate hunger in Ghana and Nicaragua!

Doors open at 5pm. Tickets to attend are available now for $50 per person/$100 per couple. Register by calling 319-352-4040 or click the button below:
