COUTURE FOR A CAUSE — 29 February 2012

Dear Friends & Readers,

On behalf of LIFT Investments, I would like to cordially invite you, a charity benefit taking place on Thursday, April 12 at Gallery Nine5 in Soho.  The evening will be a chance for guests, all young professionals from the social enterprise, finance, business and non-profit communities,  come together to support LIFT Investments’ work to alleviate poverty in East Africa. The event will include high-end cocktails and wine, appetizers, a silent auction and more.

My friend Arielle Patrick, asked me to join the impressive host committee for this special event, which is gearing up to be a big success.  As an African, I seek out every opportunity to champion important causes that are ravaging the continent.  Sub-Saharan Africa  has been devastated by famine, disease and drought for decades, and though many NGOs and non-profit organizations are donating resources to help, aide isn’t coming fast enough. Helping the citizens help themselves is an important step to making the people self-sufficient, one of the goals of LIFT Investments.

The Specifics:

What: LIFT Investments Charity Benefit

When: Thursday, April 12, 2012

Where: Gallery Nine5 (24 Spring Street, New York, NY)

LIFT Investments is a non-profit social investment fund dedicated to tackling two problems hampering economic development in low-income countries: lack of investment capital and skilled labor for growing small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) and lack of opportunity for the working poor to access job-skills training.
