On the 16th and 17th of June ICRI attended the 32nd annual Himalayan Fair in Berkeley, California. The Himalayan Fair brought Himalayan music, arts, crafts and food to the Berkeley area while fundraising to provide those affected by the recent devastating earthquakes in Nepal. ICRI attended the fair to spread the word about our programs in Nepal, our upcoming Nepal fundraising trek, and our efforts to raise money for our Nepal Response Fund after the recent earthquakes in Nepal. With the help of the Himalayan Fair attendees we were able to raise $500 for our Nepal programs and Earthquake Response Fund! 

We're also happy to announce the winner of our raffle, Sally Cahill, who received an ICRI t-shirt, a bottle of Merlot, and a $60 gift card to PF Chang's China Bistro. Thanks to everyone who came out and we hope to see you next year.
