Engineers Without Borders, a student organization at Missouri University of Science and Technology, invites the community to spend an evening learning about and sampling a selection of red and white wines at the Meramec Vineyards in St. James, Mo., on Saturday, Dec. 3.

The event begins at 7 p.m. and is open to guests 21 years of age or over. Appetizers will be served and transportation will be provided.

All proceeds will support EWB’s upcoming trip to Nahualte, Guatemala, where students plan to bring fresh, clean water throughout the town by building a deep well, well house, tank and distribution system.

“As engineering students, we can design and implement a potable water system that impacts many lives in communities across the world, but without the financial support our plans can not even begin to be carried out,” says Guatemala team leader Rachel Bartz of Kirkwood, Mo., a junior in environmental engineering.

Tickets are $15 but space is limited. Tickets can be purchased in advance at Meramac Vineyards in St. James. EWB will also sell tickets inside at Havener Center on campus between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the following days: Nov. 15, Nov. 17-18, and Nov. 28-Dec. 2.

For more information on transportation or to reserve a ticket, email Bartz at
