The Community Empowerment Network invites you to attend its third annual fundraiser, “One Night Brazil,” on Saturday, September 26th 2009. Advocates of sustainable development, environmental preservation and poverty eradication will passionately join together raising money and increasing opportunities for the impoverished communities of the Brazilian Amazon. Through a night of traditional Brazilian music, dance, food and drink, you can celebrate with ease while making a positive impact on those living in poverty. Proceeds will support CEN’s Brazilian cCLEAR Pilot Project, an innovative initiative fostering self-reliance in rural communities.

Tickets are 40 dollars for adults and 20 dollars for individuals twelve to twenty. The event features a full night of activities including live samba, bossa-nova and other Brazilian music through Dinho Costa and Friends, traditional Brazilian dinner (vegetarian available) as well as a luscious dessert auction and a silent and live auction including a raffle for a stunning handmade Amazon-themed lap quilt. The event will be located at VFW Hall, Mercer Island, 1836 72nd Ave SE, Mercer Island, Washington, from 5:30-9:30pm. You may also consider donating in-kind for the silent auction.

To sustainably achieve economic independence, individuals must posses not only the resources, but the confidence and skills to apply information learned from outside organizations to their own contexts and realities. CEN helps individuals and communities acquire the skills to break the cycle of dependency and improve their living conditions while maintaining a vibrant culture and preserving their environment.
