The 7th annual Nepali Scholarship Benefit happens 4-10 p.m. Saturday, July 28 at the Glen Park Shelter in River Falls.
Donations of $10 per adult and $5 per child age 6 and older buys a dinner of traditional Nepali food served at 5:30pm, followed by Nepali dance and music. Guests can also browse a silent auction and sale of Nepali handicrafts.
Proceeds from the benefit go to the Durga Educational Society, which is a non-profit organization in Nepal that provides homes and education for homeless children. In addition, the foundation is building schools in the rural area of Nepal to provide education in the villages.
To further assist some of these children in receiving a college education, a Nepali scholarship fund has been developed. Find the fund on Facebook Nepal Scholarship Benefit or contact Sheila Schils at 715-222-8279 for more information.
