Friends of Guirgho is a newly started non-profit organization whose mission is to partner with rural schools in Burkina Faso, West Africa, beginning with the village of Guirgho, to maximize the potential of every student by providing access to state-of-the-art educational tools and technology.

To be able to get this project off to a great start we are hosting our First Annual Auction for Education at Garvan's Gastropub in New Paltz, where you will be able to enjoy a delicious lunch and dessert in a beautiful setting, while bidding on lots of great prizes and help us raise funds for our initial phase to refurbish the elementary school in the village of Guirgho and deliver children's books, school and art supplies.

Tickets can be purchased below or directly through Eventbrite here and the Facebook event page can be found here. Feel free to spread the word. We can't wait to see you there!
