    CFEBA NEWS


    CFEBA Light Up the Village Kickoff Reception
    EBA
    Exciting things are happening at your Charitable Foundation! For its 2015-16 Annual Fundraising Campaign, CFEBA is partnering with the NRECA International Foundation 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.

    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.

    We will be hosting a Kickoff Reception to launch this year’s campaign on November 18th at the Renaissance Washington DC Hotel, immediately following the Mid-Year Meeting & Conference. The Reception will feature live music, "wine pull" and open bar.

    To purchase tickets or sponsor, visit: http://www.eba-net.org/cfeba-light-village-kickoff-reception

    What killed America's climate-saving nuclear renaissance?
    Bloomberg Business
    The road to the Alvin W. Vogtle Electric Generating Plant winds through Georgia pines, past the massive International Paper mill where many trees meet their end, and on toward the Savannah River, which forms the border with South Carolina. A couple of miles out, the 55-story steel-and-cement cooling towers loom over the tree line.
