Michael Rosenfeld Gallery in Chelsea graciously hosted The Samburu Project for our first event in New York City.  One hundred and fifty hundred new friends and donors assembled to meet and greet, wine and dine and talk about the life-changing work TSP is doing in Kenya.  Board members Alan Levitt and Doretta Bonner were in attendance. New York Water Ambassador, Dawn Curran was there to lend a hand along with the staff of the Michael Rosenfeld Gallery. A great evening was had by all. Thank You New York!



Splash Bash 2016 was held at The Mark for Events in Beverly Hills.  The evening was a huge fundraising success with over $150,000 raised for clean water in Kenya - including funding for 2 wells.  For the second year in a row, KCRW DJ Raul Campos was on hand to spin world tunes. The evening was closed with an electric performance by Balandagu Clan that inspired our guests to get off their feet and shake some booty. Thank you to everyone who made the evening such an amazing success.

Board member Debbie Buderwitz was there to assist along with volunteers Dave Johnstone, Sydney Burgoyne and Sonja Moro. Thanks to everyone for coming out on a very hot day!
