Solar Celebration at Silo City

June 21, 2022 @ 5:30 pm

Tuesday, June 21st, Let There Be Light International hosts a fundraising event at Duende in Silo City. The event begins at 5:30pm and donations are accepted. For more information and to donate, click here.

Let There Be Light International, a local nonprofit dedicated to climate action and renewable energy, is hosting this event to provide solar lighting to families, elders, and health clinics in off-grid Africa. Featuring live music from the acoustic duo “Middlemen,” stunning Ugandan artwork, authentic East African refreshments, and solar lights to brighten your summer nights, this event will be the perfect opportunity to gather with friends and family (new and old).

Executive Director, Sarah Baird, is excited to bring this signature event back to Duende after a two-year hiatus. Held annually on the Summer Solstice on the banks of the Buffalo River and in the shadows of Buffalo’s famous industrial silos, LTBLI’s Solar Celebration brings together members of the Buffalo community to celebrate the power of solar lights and collective action to benefit rural communities in Africa. All are welcome.

There is a $30 suggested minimum donation to attend (online link coming and donations accepted at the door). 100% of donations directly support vulnerable families and rural health clinics. Your Return on (charitable) Investment is 10x for every dollar you give, as families save $150 by eliminating kerosene after receiving a $15 solar light!
