HANCOCK -- The Copper Country Guatemala Accompaniment Project (CCGAP) will be featuring Captain Woody Boogie and the Pirates of Groove at CCGAP's annual fundraising party from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Friday, April 13, at the Michigan Tech Forestry Center.
The public is invited to enjoy music, dancing, and food and to participate in a silent art auction and a drawing for the grand prize of a genuine handwoven Guatemalan wool blanket -- and many other prizes. Tickets are $5 apiece and will be available at the door. Food will be available for a donation.
The CCGAP sponsors accompaniment for Guatemalan human rights workers who are at risk for violence; the group also contributes toward the education of poor indigenous Mayan Guatemalans.
