Water for South Sudan's Third Annual Fundraising Brunch

Sunday, October 14 at La Luna Restaurant in Rochester, NY

Join us for our third annual brunch and help celebrate 15 years of bringing clean water to the people of South Sudan.

The 3rd annual Founder’s Award will be presented to St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Rochester. St. Paul's was one of our earliest supporters, with special and enduring ties to Salva. Their support and unwavering belief in Salva and his dream to bring clean water to his father was one of the forces behind Water for Sudan, which was established as a nonprofit organization on October 3, 2003 and changed its name to Water for South Sudan in 2011.

The 3rd annual Long Walk Award will be long-time WFSS Board member Angelique Stevens. We are pleased to honor Angelique's long service to WFSS, including two trips to South Sudan. Her most recent trip, in 2015, was the catalyst for WFSS's monitoring and evaluation program.

Help make this brunch our most successful one yet by becoming an event sponsor.
