The Gud Foundation is working to raise funds that will go toward building a library and learning center for the student residents at Casa de Jesus in Morelia, Mexico. Sunday February 16th was our first ever fundraiser for this project. We were so happy to have about 30+ people at the event as we were expecting a number of attendants in the low 20′s. It was encouraging to see that many people in our area understand the link between educating girls and the strength of our future society.
The food and in-kind auction donations were well received and we heard many positive things from attendees both during and after the event. On top of the cultivation that occured we also raised more than twice what we had hoped!
During the event, supporters saw a video of the current learning facilities at Casa de Jesus presented by Gud Foundation Executive Director Laura Gudmundson-Tillson. She outlined the plans for renovating, improving and utilizing the current study area down to nearly every possible square foot showing donors how carefully and thoughtfully their donated funds will be used.

So all-in-all our library project salon event was a great success and we are grateful to all who participated and helped organize it.
