Burning Bush appreciates all who made our event, Clean Water 4 Uganda on October 2, a success.

Our goal was to raise $14,000 to fund two new water wells but the event netted over $17,500.  We want to acknowledge our business sponsors for the evening: Five Crowns Marketing (donated an entire well), American Money Management, Desert Trails, KXO Radio, KGBA Radio, Brickhouse Deli, Brawley Rotary Club, Imperial Rotary Club, Landmark Consulting, and Valley Vision Care.

Our individual sponsors included Kim and Ronald Wallace, Tick and Tracy Bendix, Virginia Ryerson, Pat Salcido, and David and Theresa Osterman. Five volunteers from AmeriCorps also helped keep the evening moving smoothly. 

We also want to acknowledge the sponsors of two wells funded earlier this year — Ojeda Industries and Christ Community Church.

Once these new wells are put into operation, the total number of deep-water wells funded by Imperial Valley donors will be 32.

We appreciate all who are making a difference in the lives of thousands in Uganda.
