From Sea to Shining Sea Dinner / Auction March 2

Team La Push is a group of 20 students and three teachers from Boston International Newcomers Academy in Boston, Massachusetts. The team will be participating in a service-learning trip to live and work with the Quileute Nation on their reservation in La Push, Washington in April. These students are all immigrants and English Language Learners, coming from eight different countries - some have lived in Boston for less than one year. While learning about Native American life and culture, the students are developing leadership and entrepreneurial skills through teamwork and fundraising. In addition, they will gain an appreciation of their impact on the lives of others through their service projects with the Quileute community.

At Restaurante Cesaria (266 Bowdoin Street, Dorchester) a fundraiser will be held for the group. Tickets are $25 per person or $112 for 5 tickets (a 10% discount). The dinner will be at 7:00 p.m. Contact Joan DeFeis for more information by email at: jedefeis [at] gmail.com, or call 617.584.3634.
