Team Blend — a group of high school students from Da Vinci Charter Academy who are designing bike trailers and a public service announcement system for use in the rural village of Sabana Grande in Nicaragua — will co-host an Indian fundraising dinner Sunday. The event will be in the Fellowship Hall at Davis Community Church, 421 D St.

Proceeds from the event will support students as they make a trip to rural Nicaragua this summer to see the project through to completion. The project involves applications of culturally appropriate STEM technology (science, technology, engineering and math) in the context of using bicycle technology and solar energy.

Team Blend has sponsored several trips to Nicaragua involving service projects by local high school students in recent years.

Sunday’s dinner will feature Indian specialties prepared by local chef Mary Philip, in addition to music by the Davis High Jazz Choir, a brief live auction and presentations by members of Team Blend and Seeds of Learning, a nonprofit group that also is involved in the Nicaragua project.

A suggested donation of $25 will be accepted at the door. Donations in larger amounts in support of the Nicaragua project are also welcome.

Reservations may be made by contacting Team Blend’s fundraising coordinator Shannon Mo at shannon.mo@djusd.net or Margaret Aumann at yalza@sbcglobal.net or by phone at 530-756-2616.

Doors will open at 5 p.m., dinner will be served around 6 p.m.
