Timmy Global Health WSU 2017 Gala
We would like you to be a part of our 2017 Gala! As a chapter of Timmy Global Health, we are committed to addressing global health inequities through advocacy, fundraising and service work. One of our goals this year is to raise $20,000 for our partner organization Banelino.
Banelino is a fair-trade banana cooperative located near the Northwestern corner of the Dominican Republic, just along the Haitian border. Timmy Global Health is proud to say that we have held this global cooperative for 5 years. Some of these programs include regular primary care consultations by a traveling physician, access to affordable pharmaceuticals and health education, and housing infrastructure projects. Wayne State University Timmy Global Health is a college chapter that stems from the non-profit organization Timmy Global Health--formerly the Timmy Foundation--based out of Indianapolis.
For the past nineteen years, Timmy Global Health has channeled resources to sustainable health projects in developing countries. The services provided includes primary care, nutrition programs, and clean water initiatives. By combining these short-term efforts with monetary support for partnering organizations, Timmy Global Health aims to achieve long-lasting change. As a growing chapter, we need to kick off our fundraising and advocacy efforts for the year with a bang. On November 11th, the Wayne State University Timmy Global Health chapter will be hosting its sixth Gala at The Detroit Historical Museum, from 6:30pm to 10pm. This event will include a presentation where our executive board will outline our goals and advocate our cause. We will have a cocktail hour where delicious Hors d'oeuvres will be served, along with musical entertainment and a presentation on global health equity by a Timmy Global Health representative.
Tickets are $100 per person, or $150 for VIP. Ticket includes food, drinks, musical entertainment, and networking opportunities. If you are unable to join but would still be interested in supporting our efforts, please make a donation to our chapter directly. A check made payable to Timmy Global Health, can be sent to 1353 Nottingham, Grosse Pointe Park, MI 48230.
