Business Leaders, Celebrities and Philanthropists Join Forces
SAN FRANCISCO, CA (December 04, 2018)—It will be a night only New York can deliver. On May 9, 2019, business leaders, celebrities and philanthropists will stand with and support new generations of educated girls who are transforming the continent of Africa.
The Campaign for Female Education (CAMFED), the leading international non-profit supporting girls' education, empowerment and entrepreneurship in Africa, announced the date and location of its first ever Gala. The May 2019 event will celebrate CAMFED’s 25th Anniversary and the 2.6 million girls it has educated and launched into careers and activism.
“Educating and launching 2.6 million women into successful futures is reason to celebrate,” said Lucy Lake, CAMFED International CEO. “But this Gala is also about engaging new partners in the effort to replace a cycle of poverty and injustice with a cycle of opportunity and prosperity. The Gala will create a wave of support that will create change in Africa.”
From Hollywood, business, activism and politics nearly 500 guests who are shaping the first half of the 21st Century will attend this first Campaign for Female Education gala. It will be held May 9 from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. at 583 Park Avenue at 63rd Street in New York. The evening will feature a cocktail reception, dinner, auction and live entertainment. During the event, guests will meet several young women leaders from CAMFED’s Alumni Network, CAMA.
Currently, more than 120,000 CAMFED graduates make up this peer support and leadership network. These inspiring women are mentoring and educating the next generation of girls, supporting them through school and into careers, improving the health and wealth of their communities, and entire nations.
