EWB-SCP providing clean water to the Amazon
Help us Uncork the Rain in Peru! Engineers Without Borders – Sonoma County Professional Chapter welcomes you to taste local wines, sample Peruvian food, groove to Peruvian music, and bid on local and Peruvian auction items! All proceeds will go towards our rainwater harvesting projects in the Peruvian Amazon!
Engineers Without Borders (EWB) is a non-profit humanitarian organization that designs and implements sustainable engineering projects in developing countries around the world. The Sonoma County chapter of EWB works in the Amazon region of Peru building rainwater harvesting systems which provide drinking water for local villages and school children. The purpose of the wine tasting event, called ‘Uncork the Rain’, in November is to raise money to build two more rainwater systems at schools in Peruvian villages. The event will feature wine pouring by local Sonoma and Napa County Wineries, Peruvian cuisine, Peruvian dancing, a live band, and auction featuring amazing local wines and authentic Peruvian clothing and jewelry.
