Bolivian Party in support of Bolivian fashion artists
Local Fair Trade, sustainable fashion brand, Kusikuy, is hosting a Bolivian Party Re-launch Fundraiser at their Marlboro headquarters on Sunday from 4 to 8 p.m. Festivities will include Bolivian food such as chunos (freeze dried potatoes) and api (a Bolivian drink made from corn and quinoa), Bolivian music, an Andean fashion show featuring the hand knits of Kusikuy. The evening includes a bonfire and the ritual burning of a sacred mesa in a ch'alla. Suggested donation is $20 but all are welcome. The event takes at 314 Upper Houghton Road, Marlboro. Carpooling is suggested though there is street-side parking with a one-quarter mile (scenic) walk up the driveway. The fundraiser is the Kusikuy kickstarter to begin mid-June for personalized tours of Bolivia to meet the Kusikuy knitters and herders. Opportunities to support the kickstarter campaign and get other Bolivian gifts such as antique woven blankets, leather bags, llama dolls, chocolate and other ethnic foods, will be present at the fundraiser too.
