Cascades Academy's MUSE Club will be hosting a Himalayan Dinner and Silent Auction Tuesday night to benefit Ten Friends, a local organization that works to educate young women and bring health services to remote villages in Nepal.

This year's event isfrom 6:00-8:00pm at Cascades Academy, 19860 Tumalo Reservoir Road, Bend. All proceeds support the Ten Friends Himalayan Education Center and other projects in Nepal. This fun evening features a delicious Nepalese meal, silent auction, and unique holiday gifts straight from Nepal. Tickets are $15 at the door; children 6 and under are free.  

The Cascades Academy MUSE Club is a program of World MUSE, which inspires women and girls to create positive social change from within. Their mission is to connect women and girls to their own sense of purpose as well as to each other, and to provide the tools and support they need to create positive change in their lives, in their communities, and in our world. 

They sponsor over 10 MUSE Clubs in Central Oregon, providing mentorship for girls who wish to pursue positive social change.

"We are so proud of the young women in our community who are working to raise funds for girls on the other side of the world. Their involvement in the MUSE Club is a perfect reflection of our mission to inspire socially responsible individuals ready for a diverse and changing world," said Julie Amberg, Head of School.
