Join the Kokolopori-Falls Church Sister City Partnership for Wine and Cheese on July 14th!

The Falls Church, Virginia, and Kokolopori, DRC, Sister City partnership is an innovative community-to-community program, the first of its kind between the US and the DRC. Kokolopori is the site of the Kokolopori Bonobo Reserve. Citizens of Falls Church have provided invaluable support for a micro-credit fund, health clinic, aid for Kokolopori schools, and other important livelihood programs.

You can join the partnership and meet Albert Lokosola, president of the Kokolopori-based partner organization, visiting from the DRC, on July 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Red, White & Bleu on 127 S. Washington St. For $25, you can sample South African wines paired with fine domestic cheeses and converse with Albert Lokasola. Proceeds will benefit programs in Kokolopori. Hurry! Space is limited to the first 40 respondents. Please RSVP to
