The last day to register for the 2019 Guatemala Gala is Monday, April 29. Tickets are $75 each ($15 deductible) or a table sponsorship for $1,000 ($400 deductible). Several churches have already purchased a table as a way to invite new guests to the event.
To register, go to: www.spas-elca.org/guatemala-gala.
Funds raised this year, our 6th year for the gala, will be sent to the Education Ministry of the Iglesia Luterana Agustina de Guatemala. Most urgently needed are resources to move the ILAG's elementary school, as it is located near a very steep ravine that is crumbling. Each time rain or wind attacks the rim, chunks of rock and soil are pulled off. The ILAG must purchase a new plot of land, preferably one with a solidly built structure that can be retrofitted for four classrooms and an office. Another benefit of the move will be green space for a play area.
