Nov. 4—UNH Global Medical Brigades will be hosting a fundraiser at the Community Oven in Hampton 5 to 9 p.m. Nov. 14 to raise money for an upcoming medical mission trip to Panama from Jan. 7 to 15.

Twenty percent of proceeds from all dine-in and takeout orders from the 845 Lafayette Rd. pizza restaurant will be donated to the cause.

The money raised will help 21 University of New Hampshire students pay for flights, lodging, in-country transportation, paying support staff, security, and medical supplies.

The nonprofit assists communities with water and sanitation infrastructure, economic development and sustainable health systems.
