Students in the University of Wyoming's Cross Cultural Communications class are hosting Bahati Bingo Night on Friday, November 13, at the Laramie Plains Civic Center. Admission is free, and the event is open to people of all ages.

The event is part of a community service project, and 100% of its proceeds will go to the Shalom Garden Orphanage School in Nakuru, Kenya. The orphanage provides school supplies, meals, and a safe environment for children in the Nakuru community. Senior Adam Croft says of the orphanage, "The work they do is vital in bettering not only these children's lives, but the country's future as well. It's really inspiring to be a part of that, and we hope the Laramie community will join us.

University of Wyoming professor Tracey Patton, who teaches the class, has used the service project as part of her curriculum since 2006. The orphanage supported by this year's class project exists because of fundraising efforts by previous Cross Cultural Communications classes.

In addition to the Bingo game, there will be a silent auction to help raise money for the orphanage.
