Right to Dream Inaugural Fundraiser a Smash Success
Earlier this month, industry leaders in real estate, law, the nonprofit sector, finance, and fashion came together to enjoy an evening of cocktails and conversation in support of Right to Dream, USA at the organization's inaugural fundraiser. The event, held at the XChange in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City, was organized by a committee of 15 young professionals, 25 or younger, who, in the spirit of the Right to Dream Academy, gave up their own time to help others’ dreams come true. The Right to Dream Academy, founded in 1999 in Ghana, is a fully residential, international academy that provides students with a first class education in a safe and supporting environment. Since its inception, the Academy has provided a comprehensive education to over 80 children, helping them escape the desperate cycle of poverty rampant in Ghana. Through their program, the Academy nurtures future leaders who will inspire positive social development in their communities and throughout the world.
All proceeds of the night’s event, which netted over $65,000, will help to complete the construction of a new Right to Dream Sports Academy in Ghana, as well as help fund the fifth class of students.
