Ice cream social raises over $230 for CTIE

The old-fashioned ice cream social on Thursday, July 28, raised $230.25 for CTIE in Nairobi. Lance Thompson won the cherry pit spitting contest, and Pat Beech and Tami Lubinski won the water balloon toss. Thanks go to everyone who made pies and to everyone who came to enjoy the social.

The Winona Volunteer Committee will continue to host events throughout the school year to benefit our Nairobi campus.

An anonymous trustee has issued a challenge. If the Winona Volunteer Committee can raise $3,000 for CTIE, he will mach the donation with another $3,000. The same challenge has been issued to the Twin Cities campus. If they raise $1,250, he will match that donation as well. This is just a little extra incentive to be generous — together, we’ll be able to assist countless students.
