This year, the United Nations General Assembly designated November 19th as World Toilet Day, urging changes in both behavior and policy on issues ranging from enhancing water management to ending open-air defecation. This is a day to raise awareness of the world’s sanitation and water crisis and to help us all to remember that several thousand children die each day from water and sanitation problems worldwide.

Enjoy live chamber jazz, cocktails**, hors d’oeuvres and dinner as we celebrate World Toilet Day and raise awareness for global sanitation.
