Join us at the 2015-12016 CFEBA Annual Fundraising Campaign: Light Up the Village Kickoff Reception, held immediately following the EBA Mid-Year Conference on November 18, 2015. The CFEBA provides donors engaged in the energy sector the opportunity to ensure that their charitable donations go to causes related to the energy field.  The CFEBA is partnering with NRECA International Foundation to support the men and women of U.S. utilities who lend their skills to design and implement rural electrification programs, bringing electricity to parts of the world that lack it. 

CFEBA is abandoning the Fall “silent auction” event format of yesteryear – and shifting to a year-long campaign – culminating in a Spring sit-down dinner gala to be held in conjunction with the EBA Annual Meeting. Join the CFEBA for our Fall Kick-Off Fundraising Reception where you will learn more about Light Up the Village, our important new project to provide life-changing electricity to 461 families in rural El Beni, Bolivia, a farming region located between the northeastern Bolivian cities of Guayaramerin and Riberalta. 

At the CFEBA Light Up the Village Kickoff Reception, highlights will include:
• The Paul E. Nordstrom Service Award will be bestowed posthumously on A. Karen Hill
• Live music and open bar;
• Opportunity to network with colleagues and meet policy-makers; and
• Wine Grab for your enjoyment or holiday gift giving! $20 to pull a bottle, every bottle is worth at least $15, with many ranging from $20-$50; and one very special $350 bottle!
• The first 100 to enter the Kickoff Reception get a free CFEBA wine glass!
