The annual GSSG Banquet and Silent Auction was a huge success. About 100 attendees came to hear from the Guatemalan Consul General, Mr. Jorge Archila, and to be entertained by the musical charms of the group, Different Shoes.

 

Mr. Archila gave an inspiring talk about the work of the consulates in the USA and the impact on education for the people of Guatemala. Over $8,000 was raised to support the work of GSSG in Guatemala that includes offering scholarships to qualified students, supplementing the salaries of teachers, and improving the physical facilities of schools.
