Amigos of Honduras, a local charity that helps create water sources for people in Honduras, will be hosting its semi-annual benefit dinner on March 24 at 6:30 p.m.
The benefit dinner will be held at Legends Grille on the BYU campus. This year there will be a silent action, with donations from Powder Mountain and other contributors. There will also be live music and a three-course meal catered by Legends Grille.
“Since the age of 17, I have been working with this charity, and I have always been impressed with opportunities they give people”, said Ryan Daniels, who is in charge of putting together this year’s event.
“Instead of handouts, with each project they provide means for growth and development. It’s a charity truly built on the foundation of changing lives.”
Amigos of Honduras has been serving in Honduras for seven years. Founded in 2005, the charity has finished 11 water projects and built two schools. The charity helps people who have only dirty rainwater build water systems to purify the water and provide easy access.
Fifteen students from BYU and UVU have joined to put on this year's event. They are hoping to raise $2,500 for the charity.
“It feels great to know that our efforts are helping other people”, said Adam Frogley. “Knowing that with only a little bit of our time we can change someone’s life is really incredible.”
All of the profits will be used to build schools and water systems.
Tickets are $50, with all profits donated directly to Amigos of Honduras and all donations are tax deductable. For more information, go to www.amigosofhonduras.org
