For this month's RPCV Social, we'll be helping out an RPCV and her organization's fundraiser for development work in Nicaragua. Brianna Russell is the Director of Operations and Programs at ViviendasLeon, which is an international development and education travel non-profit organization located here in San Francisco. VL works with a rural community in Leon, Nicaragua to provide sustainable, measurable gains in economic and social initiatives. VL's mission is to support human and economic development in the rural communities of Leon, Nicaragua while engaging U.S. students in global citizenship.
On Thursday, Oct 17th, the restaurant Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem (https://www.facebook.com/drteeth2323) will be donating 10% of all proceeds from drinks and food to ViviendasLeon.
So come join NorCal PCA for dinner, drinks, socializing, networking, meeting new people, seeing old friends, sharing Peace Corps stories, etc. And just by showing up, you're helping support development abroad.
Be sure to RSVP on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/events/246234218857131/, or by emailing Daniel Marlay (dmarlay [at] yahoo [dot] com), so we can reserve a table. Dr Teeth is on Mission St between 20th and 21st, so just four blocks from either the 16th or 24th Street Stations, and also easily accessible by the #14 or #49 bus lines.
