When Jayme and Courtney Bonanno visited the Laburra Primary School in Nyeri County during their Kenya honeymoon, they were welcomed by exuberant students, 6 to 14. But a tour of the school’s conditions revealed run down buildings at best. When Jayme asked the headmistress what the students needed most, it was a new kitchen and dining hall so the children didn’t have to eat outside on the dirt ground.
Jayme’s response: we have your back.
This Sunday, March 3 starting at noon, The Tap Room will host a fundraiser to keep that promise; the Laburra School needs $20,000 for their goal. The suggested donation is $20 at the door. Live music, free food, raffles and a cash bar are being offered with all proceeds going to the cause. The Tap Room is located at 114 West Main Street in Patchogue.
