Water, Baseball, and the Dominican Republic - coolest event ever

This event in Boston is so choice. If you have the means, I highly recommend attending. Plus Water For People is doing some of the most interesting work in the global water/sanitation sector currently.

People, especially children, in developing countries like the Dominican Republic suffer from unsafe drinking water and spend a large portion of their day collecting it.

Go the distance for clean water at:

Fenway Park on Saturday, May 1, 2010, 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm

Save the date! Join New England Water For People, the New England Water Works Association, the New England Water Environment Association, and local Dominican Republic community leaders at a special Gala Celebration.

The Goal: To raise funds for sustainable projects that provide safe drinking water, health and hygiene education, and basic sanitation facilities to the people of the Dominican Republic.

The Place: Fenway Park, State Street Pavilion

Some of the world's greatest Dominican baseball players from Juan Marichal to Big Papi, David Ortiz, have gone the distance in this beloved ballpark.

The Festivities: Tour the park. Warm your heart and souls with a taste of island cuisine, cocktails, music, and guest speakers.

Your Contribution: $125 per person (and to a really good cause!)

Proceeds from this event will be used to fund Water For People's program in the Dominican Republic.

Better idea:
