Taste of Latin America Dinner Event & Celebration

Join us for an outdoor dinner celebration Saturday, September 12, 2009 at 5:30 p.m. (Eastern Time) to benefit the Center for Mediation, Peace, and Resolution of Conflict and to make possible life-changing conflict resolution programs for leaders, students, and children in Latin America and the United States! Enjoy lively entertainment, a beautiful setting, and a variety of delicious food from all around Latin America prepared by local chefs. Entertainment will include Latin American folkloric dance entertainment, a silent auction, an art contest, and much more. Kids will enjoy the farm animals and hay rides, as well as the live entertainment. Tickets are $25, half price for children under 12 (family maximum of $100). Buy in advance, because tickets are $30 at the door. We invite and encourage individuals, businesses, and organizations, to support the Taste of Latin America dinner, and by doing so, to support peacebuilding work in Georgia and the world. In addition to attending the dinner, there are many opportunities to support CEMPROC and this event: we are currently asking for donations of items for the silent auction, as well as general corporate sponsorships, which will be gratefully acknowledged in print, online, and at the event. Past years' events have grossed thousands of dollars to benefit peacebuilding programs in Latin America, and have been attended by sold-out crowds of up to 140 people from 18 different countries. We would like to make this year's event just as successful, and we hope that you will be a part of this effort. For more information, please contact Jeff Pugh at jpugh9@jhu.edu.

The cost of one ticket could provide training and materials so that a dozen children in Cumming, GA can learn about effective and nonviolent conflict resolution. When a couple buys tickets, they are providing sufficient support to allow an Ecuadorian indigenous church leader to receive an intensive 20-hour practicum in peace and conflict resolution in the Christian life. Together with you, we are creating peacemakers, one person at a time!

Buy tickets online today, and save from the gate price of $30!
