Event Spotlight: World Fusion

This Saturday from 7p - 10p at Plant Zero in Manchester you can dance, eat, and drink for an incredible cause and only $25. The World Fusion event is a globally infused party that benefits services offered by the Resettlement program of the Commonwealth Catholic Charities of Virginia. World Fusion will feature the funky sounds of Richmond's own DJ Williams Projekt, light appetizers, all you can drink beer and wine, henna tattoos, a free photo booth, and a fantastic silent auction full of local restaurant gift cards, spa packages, yoga classes, and more. What an awesome deal for only $25!

Thanks to many local sponsors, your entire $25 will go towards furthering the Resettlement program services offered in Richmond.  The program helps displaced refugees that have recently arrived from war-torn countries (including Bhutan, Burma, The Congo, the Middle East) as well as newly arriving immigrants. They serve over 300 refugees per year in Richmond by providing ESL classes, school services (enrollment / homework help), casework (health screenings, social security, etc), employment services, family mentoring, transportation, and immigration counseling. You can learn more about the Resettlement program here and find volunteer opportunities here.

You can purchase tickets here or at the door on the night of the event. You can also RSVP on Facebook here.

Hope to see you there!
