A huge thank you to everyone who attended the fundraising/celebration event last night, donated generously, bought the great items donated for the silent auction, or donated previously online! Some pictures from last night are available by clicking the photo at left.
We haven’t quite achieved our goal yet (we’re close!!!), but we did manage to exceed my costs of the event by a bit (my personal contribution to the Khumbu Climbing Center was the cost of the party — food, beverages, etc.), and raised nearly $4,500 in total via the auction and donations at this event alone for the foundation. In addition to the ~$2,500 raised via this blog previously, we’ve raised nearly $7,000 for the Khumbu Climbing Center and really made a difference in the lives of the indigenous people of Nepal (and Khumbu Valley specifically).
So, thank you for your support! Thank you for a terrific evening!! And, thank you on behalf of the incredible people of Nepal and the Khumbu Valley!!! The website will continue to accept donations for some time if you would still like to contribute to this important and worthwhile cause (just click the website link below and complete your secure donation via the link below and receive your tax deductible receipt directly in your email account). It’s never too late to make a difference!
All my best and my sincerest thanks!
