Dear Friends,

We have made the difficult decision not to host a live event this year. We would love to see you in person! By eliminating the overhead of a live event and charging the same ticket price as we did in 2019, it is our great hope that we bring in more money for the children and families we support in Guatemala.

Good food and good company is the theme of this year’s event. Please join us from your home and if you are comfortable to do so, we encourage you to bring together family and friends for a fun evening of delicious food and fundraising 🙂

Many of our families in La Union have suffered indescribable hardship during this global pandemic and the impacts continue to plague them. Many of these families need their children to work so we are now doing double duty: supporting our schools, and supporting the devastated families that need our help to keep their kids in school.

On behalf of the children and families, we thank you for your support and look forward to seeing you on October 28!


Adrienne, Myra and the AEGCF Board of Directors
