Great food, delicious drinks and supporting a good cause…name a better way to spend your Saturday night. Infinite Chance, a local nonprofit, 501©(3) organization, is hosting their first ever MasquerAID to celebrate their success and work towards their goal of building a trade school in Guatemala.
In early 2011, founder Daniela Weaver traveled to Guatemala after college and after a life-changing trip, decided to relocate her life in the country. After falling in love with the people and discovering a deep need of education in the country, Daniela established Infinite Chance.
“The organization is dedicated to providing infinite chances to Guatemalan children, through education,” says Infinite Chance’s Rachel Atkinson. “By means of our many ongoing projects and future plans, we are able to provide long-term opportunities for children to escape poverty. We strive to create sustainable programs that ultimately provide much brighter futures for Guatemalan children, all thanks to our donors and sponsors.”
MasquerAID is the inaugural fundraising event of Infinite Chance, the first large scale fundraiser of the organization’s kind. Guests can expect live music, delicious food and open bar, exquisite auctions, entertainment by the Cincinnati circus, the founders of Hogar Miguel Magone in Guatemala and emceed by Paola Suro of WCPO 9 On Your Side. All aspects of the night will serve as a celebration of Infinite Chance’s success to date and the impact that both Infinite Chance and attendees can have across the world.
Funds raised will assist with ongoing projects. “The money will go towards our computer and English programs and the future goal of establishing and building a trade school in Guatemala,” says Atkinson. If individuals want to become involved in the organization, other than the MasquerAID, they can join the team, travel with the team to Guatemala, or sign up for the DARÉ program by pledging $20 a month. Infinite Chance is expecting between 150 to 200 people to be in attendance.
“We want all of our attendees to leave the event with knowledge of how big of a difference they can make in a child’s life, and also Infinite Chance as an organization.”
MasquerAID will take place on December 7, 2019 at 6pm at the Manor House in Mason. To learn more, or purchase tickets online, visit the Infinite Chance’s website.
