SchoolBOXtober

Hang on to your hats folks - there is a LOT going on this month for SchoolBOX! Four events, sprinkled throughout October, all tons of fun and all in support of a wonderful cause. Doesn't get much better than that, eh?!

10th Annual Latin Fiesta!!

Saturday October 3rd - 7pm-11pm Almonte Civitan Club

Hard to believe it's been TEN years since this event first started... It's still one of the best and brightest events of the years for SchoolBOX.

The first Latin Fiesta took place in 2006 and helped kickstart the SchoolBOX movement. 10 years ago, SchoolBOX started handing out pencils and notebooks and this year we have supported 16,674 students and teachers in 89 communities across Nicaragua.

This year's fiesta will be extra special, as SchoolBOX Director, Ronald Chavarria, will be coming all the way from Nicaragua.

Join us for a lively night of salsa dancing, amazing music and delicious food! Ole!
