Helping Children Worldwide hosted our first ever Benefit Gala Dinner and Art Auction this past Friday, July 21 at Stone Tower Winery in Leesburg, VA and it was more amazing than we could have ever hoped! We had an incredible turnout of nearly 180 guests who enjoyed a lovely dinner, live music, and dancing, as well as the opportunity to listen to testimonies from Child Rescue Centre Director Mohamed Nabieu and Medical Projects Director Kim Sprout about their experiences in Bo, and what we can all do to help. The night wrapped up with an art auction featuring paintings from local artists, as well as an artist from Sierra Leone, Ali Turay.
We hope you all enjoyed the night. We are blessed to have such generous and engaged supporters, and we are thankful for each and every one of you.
