Megan Birney with Unite to Light shared with us about solar lights & chargers.  The mission is to manufacture and distribute  efficient, durable, low coast solar lamps to people without access to electricity.  They target children, women, health clinics, midwives and victims of natural disasters.  They have distributed over 90,000 lamps to 70 countries.  They operate mostly by donations and partnering with other non-profits. They also have a "buy one, give one"  that they sell to people with electricity.  The lights sell for $20 and the chargers are $50,  If you are interested in purchasing go to www.unitetolight.org

BBB was held October 13, 2018 and was a huge success.  While the total raised is not in, our friends and families had a great time.  Adding the raffle drawing was well received along with all the Silent  Auction items.  The burgers were fantastic, thanks to ManRock.  The music was top rate.
