Dine on authentic cuisine from Guinea-Bissau and select local wines…

Discover the surprising connection between the Valley and this tiny country’s future…

Two years after a military coup, Guinea-Bissau finds itself at a historic crossroads. At the intersection is one man – Fresno State alumnus Domingos Simões Pereira, who was appointed prime minister of the country in June and tasked with the job of saving Guinea-Bissau from another decade of extreme poverty and instability.

Join us in helping create a brighter future for Domingos’ country on October 10th as WAVS hosts its second annual dinner banquet featuring West African cuisine, local wine tasting, live music from violinist Patrick Contreras, a live auction, and a multimedia presentation about how the Valley community is working with WAVS to give young men and women critical job skills so they can become effective leaders of change in one of the world’s smallest and poorest countries.

Now more than ever, Guinea-Bissau needs the Valley’s support. Be a part of shaping history on October 10th.
