UWGP auction raises more than $50k!
The UW Guatemala Project Vuelo del Quetzal auction on March 31st, 2007 was an amazing and inspiring success! With the support of community members like you, we were able to exceed our fundraising goal of $50,000, which will sustain our project in its current form for at least 10 years. See our 'Auction' page for acknowledgments of our generous donors, and some pictures of the event.
