Benefit dinner for ear surgery a big success
On Friday, October 24th, the University of Vermont’s Gund Institute for Ecological Economics hosted a benefit dinner and silent auction to raise money for ear surgery for Negrita, a 6 year-old Haitian-Dominican of Batey Libertad. The event was a big success, raising money for a procedure necessary to save Negrita’s hearing. A huge “abrazos” from the Batey Libertad community to Carol Franco and Ida Kubiszewski for organizing the event and cooking up some delicious Dominican food, and to all the students and faculty for your generous donations.
If you’re still interested in donating, checks can be made out to “Batey Libertad Fund” and sent to: Jon Erickson, 344 Aiken Center, University of Vermont, Burlington, VT 05405. Please write “Negrita” in the memo.
