What are we fundraising for?
The Atai Orphanage Fund is a registered 501(c)(3) charity with a mission to provide food, clothing, education, permanent housing, and vital health services to the Orphans of the Teso District of Northern Uganda. The organization is operated by unpaid volunteers and all proceeds from any fundraiser is used to meet the needs of the children. Thanks to the generous support from friends of Atai, we are now housing 54 children in two houses and several huts within Atai Village. We are also feeding more than 100 – 150 children from neighboring villages two meals a day using food grown on our farm land!
The Annual Trivia Night is normally held in spring. Our next trivia night event will be held on Saturday April 29, 2017 in the Von Gontard Auditorium of the St John Mercy Medical Center in Creve Coeur. Check in starts at 6:00 pm. Game play starts promptly at 7:00 pm. Please keep an eye on Facebook for details about this upcoming event.
Tickets for trivia night will be available at the door the night of the event. You can pay with cash, check or credit card. You can also pre-purchase your seats using your Paypal account or credit card by selecting the number of guests from the drop down and clicking the buy now button below.
A Village of the Heart Dinner and Auction
Our dinner auction is held in the fall of each year. The cost of the event is $50 per person, or $80 per couple. This years event will be held on Friday November 18, 2016 @ 6:30 pm at the All Occasion Banquet Center in Saint Charles Missouri. When attending this event, you will experience some traditional Ugandan food and help raise some money to enhance the living conditions for the children of Atai Orphanage. We have both silent and oral auction items to bid on at these events.
We will post photos and additional details for each fundraising event on our facebook page at:http://www.facebook.com/AtaiOrphanage. A Facebook account is not required to view our facebook page.
