CCGAP to hold annual party April 15 in Forestry Atrium

HANCOCK -- The Copper Country Guatemala Accompaniment Project (CCGAP) will be hosting its annual appreciation party from 7:30 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. on Friday, April 15, at the Michigan Tech Forestry Building Atrium (same place as last year).

The Uptown Swingsters -- a very danceable six-piece band -- will provide music for both dancing and listening.

For a $5 donation ticket, visitors will have a chance to win lovely Guatemalan artful and useful items -- including the grand prize, a beautiful woven Guatemalan wool blanket.

A silent auction will offer an array of Guatemalan goods and art for purchase.

Refreshments will be served, including yummy desserts. Donations welcome.

The Copper Country Guatemala Accompaniment Project (CCGAP) promotes human rights by responding to requests for international accompaniment from Guatemalan organizations and/or communities, and also by increasing awareness of Guatemala in the Copper Country of Michigan.
