BENEVOLE, INC. HOSTS BLACK & WHITE AFFAIR FUNDRAISER
Benevole, Inc. is hosting its 2ND fundraiser “A Tribute to MLK-A Black and White Affair” on Saturday, January 15, 2011 at Project 4 Gallery (1353 U St. NW, Washington, DC) from 7-11 pm. The donation per person is $35, and the evening includes heavy hors d’ouvre and an open bar. Attendees are asked to wear black and white chic attire. Proceeds from this event will go to DC Central Kitchen, whose mission is to use food as a tool to strengthen bodies, empower minds, and build communities. DC Central Kitchen provides a comprehensive continuum of care to the people. Services include serving breakfast and providing outreach and counseling services to chronically homeless people living on the streets. Each day 3,000 pounds of food are converted into 4,500 meals that are distributed to 100 shelters, transitional homes, and rehabilitation clinics throughout the DC area.
President and Co-Founder George L. Slaughter states, “At Benevole, we seek to help bridge the gap between beneficiaries and benefactors by supporting and advocating for our existing non-profits. During this MLK Holiday we could not find a more fitting organization than DC Central Kitchen that answers the question ‘What are we doing for others?’(MLK).” Current sponsors include Urban Enterprise, Project 4 Gallery and Strategic Technology Institute, Inc.
Tickets for the event can be purchased on-line at http://www.benevoleinc.org/Events.html and must be secured by January 8. For more information regarding Benevole, Inc., please visit the website at www.benevoleinc.org.
