Decade of Dreams - Mosqoy's 10th Anniversary Gala

On Friday, November 25, 2016, we invite you to share in our mission and celebrate the future of Mosqoy at our 10th Anniversary Gala, Decade of Dreams. The event will be hosted at the spectacular Crystal Ballroom in Victoria’s renowned Fairmont Empress Hotel, with extraordinary keynote speaker, Ronald Wright.

Festivities for the night include...
- A sustainably sourced four-course dinner
- Silent auction including local tours, hotel stays, pamper packages, music, photographs, paintings, and more
- Fair-trade and hand-woven Andean textile sale (with natural fibres and dyes)
- A special presentation from our keynote speaker: Award-winning Canadian author and CBC Massey Lecturer, Ronald Wright, who wrote Stolen Continents, A Short History of Progress, and one of the best travel tales of Peru, Cut Stones & Crossroads: A Journey in Peru, among many more!

All proceeds from the night will go directly to our charitable programs.

Mosqoy is a charitable organization based in both Victoria, Canada and Cusco, Peru. Mosqoy, meaning “dream” in Quechua, the indigenous language of the Andean mountains, aims to mitigate the adverse effects of unsustainable tourism and development by providing economic opportunities for marginalized Quechua communities of the Peruvian highlands while nurturing their threatened culture.

We look forward to seeing you at the gala to celebrate our 10th Anniversary!
