Third Annual Bpeace Gala
Wednesday May 14, 2008, 6PM
Capitale, 130 Bowery, New York, NY
The Bpeace Gala on May 14th in New York City is a fun and festive event and our most important annual fundraising activity. Funds raised keep our offices in Kigali and Kabul open and provide field grants and training to the Rwandan and Afghan female entrepreneurs in our program.
Our goal is to net $200,000 through table and ticket sales, live and silent auctions our very successful "Fund a Cause" moments.
There are lots of new highlights this year, including a new venue - the fabulous Capitale in New York City - a CNBC-TV host - and a special honoree who is bringing her friends and family to support Bpeace.
Cookbook author, Public Television Host, Chef and Restaurateur Lidia Bastianich is receiving our first Bpeace Economic Impact Award recognizing the businesses her family has built and the ripple effect they have produced in terms of jobs created, business partners who have prospered, with the result that thousands of families have fashioned a better future for themselves and their children. This directly mirrors the effect we wish for Bpeace activities - that our Rwandan and Afghan Associates build strong businesses that foster peace, prosperity and stability in their communities.
The evening will include cocktails, dinner, silent and live auction. Tickets: $500.00
