Lots of news from CEPIA. The annual Robert August Surf & Turf, which took place last April and drew participants from Europe, the U.S., Canada, Australia and Costa Rica, raised $13,000 for the organization. The money will go to activities like the After-School Program 2012, which offers classes to 240 kids. In addition, CEPIA offers popular free courses for those 16 and older who want to learn haircutting, massage, English, crafts, cooking, computing, yoga and how to make eco-jewelry.
