Last Friday (June 3, 2016) RGBSI attended the second annual An Evening with EWB, a fundraiser to support safe drinking water projects. The host of the event, the Detroit Professional Chapter of Engineers without Borders (EWB), is a group of dynamic and hard-working professionals from in and around the Metro Detroit area committed to improving the quality of life for people in need here in Detroit and around the world.
Through the donations of the sponsor companies and the proceeds of the silent auction, this event raised $74,000!
This year’s proceeds will be directed towards helping the people of Laguna de Apoyo, Nicaragua access cleaner and more dependable drinking water. Details about the project and the difficulties faced by the villagers can be found here.
RGBSI is proud to be listed as a Silver Sponsor of such an honorable and praise worthy event and we look forward to seeing the advances in this project made possible by the generous donations of all of the sponsors and attendees of An Evening with EWB.
