Engineers Without Borders-Alamo is hosting a Happy Hour and Silent Auction with the Hoppy Monk. There will be drinks, mingling, a silent auction and more. The Fundraiser will be held on July 12th, 2018 at the Hoppy Monk at 6 pm.
Engineers Without Borders-USA is a world-renowned nonprofit that partners with developing communities, domestic and worldwide, in order to improve their quality of life. The Alamo Professional Chapter of EWB is actively involved in sustainable community improvement projects overseas. The money raised will directly contribute to the mitigation of flooding in San Vicente del Coyolito, Nicaragua. This community suffers from incessant flooding and labor-intensive repairs of major roads. However, these repairs are impermanent because their efforts are washed away with every storm. EWB-Alamo plans to engineer a sustainable solution to help keep the roads operational and safe. The improved connection will give year-round access to medicine, food, and other basic human needs.
