The global literacy nonprofit Learning InSync is holding a Bid n’ Brunch fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb. 24, with bids for a silent auction of African art closing at 2 p.m., at The Burren, 247 Elm St., Davis Square, Somerville. There is a $5 suggested donation for entry.
The event promises a day of comfort food and mimosas, live music – from a band including Tom Bianchi and James Rohr of The Blue Ribbons – and authentic African crafts such as paintings, wood carvings and jewelry.
The organization, founded in 2011 by Harvard students, is based in Kendall Square and already at work in Tanzania boosting literacy, finding a model that will work around the world.
Those who can’t attend in person can donate online at learninginsync.org. For information, send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
