All proceeds provide clean water projects in India, enabling women to pursue job and educational opportunities instead of having to walk for miles to fetch water, insuring men have reliable water sources for their crops and livestock, and allowing children to enjoy the sweetness of a good bath and clean water so they can grow up healthy and strong.
The event will be held at the 519 Conference Center, located at 1100 Perimeter Park Drive in Morrisville, NC, and will start at 10 am.
