Due to COVID-19, we have postponed Fiesta 2020. While we are still unsure when we can safely gather, we look forward to sharing this event with you in the future. We continue to closely monitor the health guidelines and as of right now, we do not have plans to host our walk this fall. As a healthcare organization, the health and safety of our donors and their families is extremely important to us. Please check our website or social media for future updates.
Each spring, we gather to celebrate the successes in Honduras at our annual Fiesta, MdL’s largest fundraiser! The evening includes a silent and live auction, a full bar and dinner, and Bids for Kids. Bids for Kids is a Fiesta tradition and includes a video with updates directly from our youth and families in Honduras. Viewers are then invited to “bid” on the various aspects of MdL life, such as healthcare, education, psychological support and family reintegration. The funds raised at this event, as well as the funds from our amazing event sponsors, help to sustain our mission. To learn more about Fiesta, or about how you or your company can be involved, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the past several years, MdL has hosted a walk in the fall to raise additional support for our programming. It is a smaller event that Fiesta, but important nonetheless! For the first few years, we focused primarily on raising funds for our youth’s educational costs (public and private school, vocational training, and university), but as our youth have gotten older and have entered the workforce, the funds raised from this event go to our general transitional funds. These funds help our youth to secure employment, search for an apartment, and learn to live more independently. This event includes a 5K walk or run and a duck race! Individuals are invited to purchase ducks and winners are given prizes. To learn more about the walk, or about how you or your company can be involved, email us at email@example.com.
Are you called to host an event on behalf of Montaña de Luz? We would love to support you in raising funds for our children and families. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at 614-848-8077. Our Director of Development will support you at each step of the way!
Here are a few ideas:
-Invite us to your workplace to speak about our mission.
-Hold a house party and invite your friends and family.
-Advocate for our cause at your church, school, or rotary club.
-Collaborate with us to host an event at your business.
This mission would not be possible without the dozens of small events individuals, churches, schools, and businesses host every year to support children and families affected by HIV/AIDS. We are so grateful for any support you can give.
