Annual Fundraiser Scheduled for October

Carmen Pampa Fund extends an open invite to everyone interested in attending its annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction fundraiser. The event will be held on Thursday, October 18, 2018, at St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church in South Minneapolis, Minn.

“This is a wonderful event that we host every fall with the purpose of gathering together new friends and long-time donors, as well as former UAC-CP volunteers and visitors, to share the story of the UAC-CP and celebrate the College’s achievements,” CPF Executive Director Hugh Smeltekop said. “It’s also a nice way for us to raise operating funds for the College in Bolivia.”

Chuck Kanski, owner of Solo Vino Bottle Shop in St. Paul, Minn., will return to guide guests through a sampling of pre-selected wines. “Chuck has been such an integral part of our fundraiser’s success over the past several years. We are very grateful to him for generously sharing his time–and his wine–with us!”

Hugh explained that this year there will be several new Bolivian items in the silent auction, as well as unique travel opportunities and Twin Cities event packages. “In an extra exciting twist, we will also be promoting the opportunity to bid for auction items through an online platform. This will allow our worldwide community of friends to participate in the event,” Hugh said.
