Description:

Food, Fun and Philanthropy!

The Sonder Project will be hosting its premiere fundraising event at Arnett's Gulfside Stables in Santa Rosa Beach on the evening of May 9th.

Come out for a delicious dinner and stay for the fabulous live entertainment provided by Daphne Willis! Bring your dancing boots and prepare to get down for the cause! Don't forget to check out the awesome auction items!

All proceeds benefit the The Sonder Project and their goal of contributing to the end of extreme poverty worldwide by providing the resources needed for success to those who need it the most - especially those living on less than $1.25 a day. By helping these areas to necessities such as clean water, agriculture and education we hope to end the cycle of poverty in these places.

“Sonder” is the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own -- in other words, the understanding that everyone has a story.

In 2015, the Foundation has partnered with buildOn and committed to building 2 schools in Burkina Faso Africa. In February, a small number of our staff traveled to the country and began construction on our first school of the year in the small village of Roure.

In addition to building another school in September, we are preparing to drill a well to bring safe, drinkable water to a nearby village in the coming months as our next project. At the same time, we are partnering witha local NGO, Planting Peace, with a commitment to deworm ONE MILLION children this year. Deworming is widely recognized as one of the greatest impacts you can make with charity dollars - with the ability to change a child's life for just pennies per child.

At a local level, we are starting by helping to finish a home with Habitat for Humanity this month, while leading a group of new guardian ad litems to support the abused and neglected voices here at home.

We know this is just the beginning of a new and great adventure in opportunity both for our local community and for those far away.

Come out and show your support for The Sonder Project on May 9th. A great night out for a great cause!
