Looking for something fun and inspiring to do Friday night (October 8th)?  Come out to Global Exchange’s Open House.  From 6PM to 10PM on October 8th at our office at 16th and Mission in San Francisco we will be opening our doors to our supporters and friends.  It will be a wonderful evening with great food and drink, music, and a chance to meet and mingle with Global Exchange staff.  And of course, we’ll be hosting our annual Prize Drawing.  Don’t miss out on your chance to win a Reality Tour and to support our work.  Tickets are just $10.

We host our Open House to celebrate you, our supporters and to thank you for your work and dedication to build a better world.  Being involved in the planning has given me an inside view on how this year’s Open House is shaping up, and all I can say is, I am expecting it to be an uplifting evening.

At the Open House you’ll have a chance to learn about our latest work; meet our founders, board members, and staff; and enjoy delicious food and wine.  This year we will have a live performance by Fely, a talented singer-songwriter from West Africa.

Every year as part of our Open House celebration we also hold a prize drawing with some really REALLY great prizes. The chances of winning are high, as the pool of folks who buy them are usually limited to the people who attend, which is about 200 people. BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO HAVE TO BE THERE TO WIN. This year’s FABULOUS prizes include:

  • Grand Prize: Reality Tour to Nicaragua OR Chiapas, Mexico OR $1000 toward a Tour of your choice.
  • Sir Francis Drake Hotel Stay
  • Apron Strings, Cooking Class for 4 with GX Founder, Kevin Danaher
  • Thanksgiving Coffee for One Year
  • 2 coupons for one month unlimited yoga at Funky Door Yoga
  • $50 Gift Certificate to Berkeley Global Exchange Fair Trade Store
  • $50 From San Francisco Global Exchange Fair Trade Store

Tickets are $10 each and 6 for $50.  Click here to buy your tickets today!

What’s more, the money you contribute will go to directly support Global Exchange and our work for human rights, economic justice and environmental sustainability.

I look forward to seeing you on October 8th, and good luck in the Prize Drawing. May your ticket be the lucky winner!!
