ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Amigos for Christ is a nonprofit organization that facilitates health, education, and economic development in rural Nicaraguan communities. According to the organization, 67% of children in the Central American country will not finish the 6th grade. Amigos for Christ hopes to achieve a 100% graduation rate for these students, and building a new school in the rural Nicaraguan community of La Chuscada is a piece of that plan.
On Saturday, February 6, 2016, at 6:00pm, Amigos for Christ volunteers from St. Louis are hosting a gala at St. Louis City Center Hotel in order to raise funds to help build the school. The cost is $100 a person. Guests will enjoy a three course dinner, complementary beer and wine, silent auction, and live music.
