A Special Invitation
The Board of Directors of the HavServe Volunteer Service Network (HavServe) is pleased to extend an invitation to you to join us on the occasion of our 7th Annual Volunteer Recognition Gala. Under the sponsorship of the County Executive’s Office of Montgomery County, Maryland, this event will take place on Saturday, January 13th, 2018, at 6 PM in the Great Hall of the Silver Spring Civic Building at Veterans Plaza in Silver Spring, MD.
HavServe’s annual gala always recognizes our dedicated volunteers and raises funds that provide critical support for our ongoing program activities in Maryland and in Haiti. The 2018 Gala however, acquires renewed urgency given the devastation left by Hurricane Matthew and the subsequent flooding which is still occurring in the areas where we operate in southwestern Haiti. We have been forced to reorder our priorities as large numbers of the children we serve continue to need food, basic shelter and clean water; and the five elementary schools we support have been severely damaged. So on January 13, 2018, come to support a great cause! we hope to raise enough to continue assisting our local community partners on the ground in Haiti to address immediate needs, and to begin rebuilding the schools that were damaged in the hurricane.
Festive Evening Attire suggested! We are planning to bring you the finest entertainment for a night of Haitian music and dancing, topped with excellent Caribbean/French cuisine! Attend on your own or with friends to network with our elected officials and networking while celebrating our international network of volunteers who promote educational and social development of youth in Haiti and in the D.C. metro area.
We would be so honored by your presence and would welcome the opportunity to formally thank you for your support of HavServe’s mission and commitment to helping one child at a time have a fair chance at a brighter future.
