Demand for tickets for this great evening will be high, so don't wait to purchase yours and run the risk of being put on the waiting list. You'll be talking about how much fun you all had at this event for months, and how great the food and entertainment was.
Ticket price is only $99 per person and includes a full meal: chicken wings, sausage on a stick, roasted potatoes, pork sliders, brisket sliders and the 'Roasted Akaushi Brisket Carving Station'. But wait-there's more! Whiskey, beer, wine, cigars, and live blues music provided by THOSE GUYS TX, all on the beautiful rooftop of Sundown at Granada. Caution: dress casual-you're gonna want to get messy!
We need your help NOW. After more than five years of fighting and lots of persistent negotiations, peace has returned to South Sudan. With peace, comes hope, with hope, returnees who want to plant, build, educate and rebuild their lives. However, there is no life without water. Therefore, we are facing an unprecedented demand for well repairs. We plan to do all we can to repair every well in South Sudan.
Together, we have fostered hope through grassroots peace efforts. Let's complete the task we set upon, by giving these dear folks the most basic building ingredient to life, clean, safe, water. Join the Water Is Basic team at Sundown at Granada for this great evening-we can't wait to see you there. DON'T FORGET THAT 'GUYS' MEANS EVERYONE!!

Join Water Is Basic and Foundation United Methodist of Temple as we come together for an afternoon of food, fun, and challenges as we raise money for clean water in South Sudan. Our team on the ground in South Sudan is ready to go out and repair all the broken water wells in South Sudan, and they need your help to make that possible.
During the 2 mile walk, you will have a chance to drink water that has been filtered from our Sawyer Water Filtration System, 'try' and balance a Jerry Can on your head (great photo op) and be part of a Carry The Jerry Relay Race Challenge. It's interactive, its fun, and you leave knowing that you are part of the solution. Together we can make a huge difference!
Be at the West Temple Park from Noon-3PM on Sunday, October 7th for CARRY THE JERRY WALK. We will have a pot-luck lunch, then you can register and check-in for the walk, bring your donations and get your Carry The Jerry Walk t-shirt on and get ready to have some fun and make a difference. We will be accepting cash, checks (make out to: WATER IS BASIC), and credit card donations before, during, and after the walk. 100% of your donations go directly to helping us bring clean water to thousands of men, women and children in South Sudan.

We need your help this fall. After more than five years of fighting and persistent negotiations, peace has returned to South Sudan.
With peace comes hope, and hope brings returnees to plant, build, educate and reconstruct their lives. However, there is no life without water, so we are facing an unprecedented demand for well repairs. We plan to do all we can to repair every well in South Sudan.
Here's how you can help:
Purchase a ticket to our Topgolf Alpharetta Event.
If you can't attend, you can give via the donation button on the event page.
Spread the word! Invite your neighbors, friends and family members.
Be an event sponsor making sure every dollar raised goes straight to clean water.
It will be an evening full of fun, challenges, and new experiences as you test your skills during the TopContender Team Tournament, or as you take a chance at winning the $10,000 Hole-In-One cash prize. There are prizes for both the winning and losing teams (you can lose and still win-what a deal).
When it comes to the game itself, players hit micro-chipped golf balls that track each shot’s accuracy and distance while awarding points for hitting targets on the outfield. Whether you’re an aspiring golf pro or picking up a club for the first time, Topgolf is everyone’s game. It’s fun. It’s competitive.
Buy your tickets now for a team of six (6) or as an individual contender (we will place you on a team), and while you are at it go ahead and buy your Hole-In-One tickets for only $10 per ticket (you get one shot per ticket at the $10,000 cash prize) and get ready to help us prepare for the next 10 years of Nation Building.
PLEASE NOTE: This event is at the Alpharetta location and NOT the Atlanta location for Topgolf.

Photo Exhibit & Independent Film Screening In Support of Water is Basic
The nation of South Sudan is the newest nation on earth, it also is the must broken and is climbing out of the deep pit of their latest civil war.
With women walking on average 5 miles to collect water, Water is Basic is committed to giving every person in South Sudan access to clean water. Raising awareness and funds, they focus on building local teams of South Sudanese. It is a local solution to a local problem.
Events like this one, bring hearts and minds together to provide funding for this crucial work. Your ticket price will purchase hope for more than 50 people by providing a Sawyer Water Filter, bucket and training. A Sawyer filter eliminates 99.999% of the stuff in dirty water that kills.
It's simple, a filter is life.
We have a simple equation.
Meat (+ Whiskey/Beer + Cigars + Rooftop of Granada) = Water
Those who like good company as much as a good cause are welcome.Tickets are $99.
Yes it really is that simple.
So join us Thursday, March 31st, from 6-9pm on the rooftop of Sundown at Granada!
