LAHU - USA Summer Soiree

IMPACT LIVES AROUND THE GLOBE FROM THE TOP OF THE WORLD

On Thursday, June 27, we gather a small, yet diverse group of friends, supporters, and family, at a private event at One World Observatory, coming together in support of vulnerable Ugandan Children and their families.  The weather should be perfect for a hot night of fun, networking and fundraising!

We are raising funds that will allow us to expand our Lunch Program and reach more students than ever!

LAHU- USA: Uganda has over 3 million orphaned and vulnerable children due to HIV/AIDS, systemic poverty, scarcity of opportunity, lack of infrastructure and poor access to health care. These children live with no access to basic human needs. Lend a Hand Uganda believes that every child has the right to live a healthy life full of possibility, including attending and having success at school.  By providing a lunch, students have the incentive to come to school and the ability to concentrate the entire day.

Prepare for an unforgettable experience at One World Observatory. Witness the unparalleled New York City Skyline from the top of the Freedom Tower. Ride a SkyPod Elevator to the top from a private entrance (skip the line!) and enjoy two complimentary drinks at the top. Each guest will receive a special gift from LAHU-USA.

Please join us to make a difference for these kids!
