Plate Lunch Fundraisers Earn 44% of Website Goal

Posted by United Houma Nation on Friday, September 21, 2018

Earlier today the UHN held its second plate lunch fundraiser to raise the necessary funds to redesign our aging website.  Today's lunch was a boiled shrimp dinner bringing the total profit achieved thus far to $2,179, which is 44% of the total goal.  

With over 17,000 tribal citizens internationally, the UHN website is a life-line to communicate effectively with the membership.  Additionally the current site has several non-functioning components including an online store that we are looking forward to launching in a new site.  The next fundraising event is an Indian Taco and Grilled Corn Lunch scheduled for October 16.  The UHN staff is projecting to have the entire funds raised by the end of the year if sales continue at this pace.  

Anyone wishing to contribute to this effort can do so by donating through PayPal and it will be ear-marked for the website.
