During the event, a special raffle will be held and feature fabulous prizes including spa and beauty treatments, health and exercise classes, dining vouchers, clothes and jewelry items. Additionally the founder of Tunnel Lab, Brazilian Julia Moura, will speak during the luncheon. Having earned a bachelor’s from PUC and a master’s from Hult International University in San Francisco, Moura founded the Tunnel Lab with the goal of empowering the youth of Rio’s favelas through learning more about problems that face their communities, including lack of water, poor sanitation, drug trade violence, and lack of cultural activities. Through classes about technology and social entrepreneurship, along with hands-on workshops, the Tunnel Lab also provides participants with skills and knowledge of the tools that can be used to help make long-term differences in their communities. To learn more Tunnel Lab, go here, to view the organization’s website.
