Tolleson NGC, in February, reserved the entire Cafenasium to celebrate the culture of Brazil and bring awareness to Shelter of Friendship.

Inside the building, they set up stations to showcase four different regions of Brazil. Members made poster boards with information and some brought Brazilian snacks for people to sample. There was a station  for mask-painting, Brazilian Carnival Style.

The adviser, Mr. Goman, was in charge of the soccer net where students took a shot to get a goal past him.

There was also a table where students were educated about Shelter of Friendship and were able to donate.

“I feel as if the night was extremely successful,” said Jose-Luis Gomez, team leader. “The atmosphere was really relaxed, and I think that attracted people. The free food was a plus, and the opportunities to be engaged helped out.We had a mask-making station, an opportunity to try to get a soccer ball past Goman, and a chance to paint your hands on a Brazilian flag.”
