Join Verde Valley School for the 11th Annual Oxfam Hunger Banquet
Sedona AZ (February 4, 2020) – Now in its 11th year, Verde Valley School’s Annual Hunger Banquet is an inspiring event that shouldn’t be missed. During this interactive dinner, VVS Theater students perform moving vignettes that touch on some of the issues that contribute to poverty and hunger worldwide, such as natural disasters, armed conflict, migration and lack of access to education. Their original monologues create empathy for people in situations that often don’t have a voice to tell their own stories.
This powerful evening challenges us to become agents of change because the inequitable distribution of resources in our world affects everyone. 100% of the proceeds are used to fight local hunger and provide educational opportunities for girls in Malawi, Africa, where VVS students work each summer. There are over $5000 in raffle prizes from generous local businesses and you do not need to be present to win.
Funds raised through this event have allowed VVS to distribute over 8600 Weekend Meal Packs to food insecure children in local elementary schools, pack 20,000 meals for the Tewa and Hopi tribes, provide secondary school tuition for 220 girls in Malawi and provide 600 menstrual hygiene kits to Malawian girls to help them stay in school… and so much more. As a community, let’s join together in a commitment to improve the lives of those around us: Thursday, Feb. 20, from 6:00-8:00pm at VVS in Brady Hall, 3511 Verde Valley School Rd., Sedona, AZ.
- Dinner admission: $15, Raffle tickets: $5 each or 5 for $20
- Tickets on sale at Clark’s Market, Oak Creek Espresso and Starbucks on the weekends, and can be purchased online at: tinyurl.com/hungerbanquet2020.
