Facebook Case Challenge Continued

Check out the video our students made. Help them win the $50,000 Case Challenge and they will send you something from Costa Rica!!

In other news, the Tierra Cosecha event last Saturday was a huge success! We appreciate everyone's participation and support! Here's a few pictures from the event:

Guests were greeted at the door and admitted for a $10 donation. At this point they received a raffle ticket and a Sweetwater glass.

Tierra attendees filled out their contact information and submitted their tickets in the raffle. Thanks to our fabulous sponsors, there were many great door prizes in the raffle, such as a dinner for two at Woodfire Grill!

The event was catered by Evos, a self-proclaimed "healthy and environmentally sound fast food chain", which was very tasty!

Tierra guests had the opportunity to learn about EARTH University and many of the things that go on at the university in Costa Rica.

One of the most exciting events of the evening was the Capoeira show which was performed by Cordao de Ouro.
