On Monday, November 16, the EWB-NY Rubaya Team held its first fundraiser at the beautifully renovated 5th & Mad! The team raised over $1,200 towards its first assessment trip to Rubaya, Rwanda, with the help of generous co-workers, friends, and fellow EWB-NY Professional chapter members. The team is working towards its goal of $10,000 for its assessment trip!
Throughout the night, team members shared information about the project and EWB and shelled out tons of raffle tickets for a 50/50 raffle. We mingled and mixed over happy hour drinks, talking about our project with multi-disciplinary colleagues and friends (and potential new team members!). Midway through the night, our project lead, Mira Armstrong, thanked everyone in attendance, gave a brief project overview, and announced the lucky winner of the 50/50 raffle.
