Watoto Read is hosting its first annual dinner gala fundraising event! The event will be held on September 13, 2019 from 6 to 9pm at La Navona in Gahanna, Ohio. During the event we will have a silent auction as well as a live auction. The silent auction will open for bidding starting at 12:00noon on September 13th and will close at 8:15pm. The live auction will begin at 8:00pm. Bidding is open only to those attending the event and items won may be picked up at the conclusion of the event. Tickets for the event are available on our website at https://watotoread.com/annual-dinner-gala/.
All proceeds from this event will go to support the development of a community center in Goz Beida refugee camp in Chad, Africa. The community center will provide a variety of educational services including a computer lab, library, science academy as well as a community gathering space. Our goal is to raise $10,000 during the event.

Since our fundraising inception in 2016, we have raised over $250,000 which has been used to build & furnish classrooms in Goz Beida refugee camps in Chad, Africa.
