Smiley Guys hosts fundraiser for Partners in English Language Learning

Smiley Guys Smokehouse will host a fundraiser to benefit Partners in English Language Learning (PiELL) from 5 to 9 p.m. Feb. 25. Smiley Guys Smokehouse slow-cooks their food, and offer vegetarian options, according to a press release. The owner, Jesse Cohen, has pledged to donate 10 percent of all orders (including take-out) to PiELL.

PiELL, a nonprofit, offers free one-on-one ESL tutoring to adults in Nevada County. Volunteer tutors are trained during a two-day session and matched with an adult student. Tutors meet with their students for an average of one to two hours per week at a location convenient to them. The next volunteer training is scheduled for March 12 and 19. For information call PiELL at 530-265-2116.
