Upcoming Oxfam meeting April 4th

Hello Oxfam organizers!

Come join us for our next meeting on Thursday, April 4th from 7:00-8:00pm at 65 W. Girard Ave. We have a couple of exciting new plans to discuss!

1) The Salt Lake Downtown Farmer's Market is coming up and we need to schedule volunteers to staff the table for a few Saturdays this summer.

2) Also, we'd like to talk about hosting a screening of Girl Rising sometime in the next couple of months. It's a great new documentary about girl's education; check out the trailer if you haven't seen it yet! We've talked to the production company, and they said that they would love to have Oxfam use Girl Rising for one of our fundraisers. While there is a minimal charge for our use of the film, we are allowed to charge a ticket price to cover the screening cost and donate proceeds to Oxfam. At the meeting, I'd like to hear your thoughts about whether we should do the screening in a public theater, or on the U of U's campus, or both! The Society for Empowering Women Worldwide (a club on the U of U's campus) has said that they would be interested in sponsoring the screening.

3) We also need to make some assignments for getting sponsors for this fall's Hunger Banquet!

So mark your calendars for Thursday April 4th at 7pm; and bring a friend!
