PRLog - Nov. 22, 2011 - Irish people have and continue to have a proud tradition of charity both nationally and internationally whenever and where-ever it is needed. It was in this spirit that HOPe was born in the Kerry Hall, Yonkers, New York by a small group of committed individuals. Ten years later, HOPe is a recognized humanitarian organization that works with extreme poverty in the developing world. Over the years, HOPe has built community centers in Peru, carpentry schools in Costa Rica, provided micro-loans in Ethiopia and recently sent a container full of tools and supplies to Honduras.
“Our focus is on education and capacity building. We give the less fortunate the tools and resources they need to fight their way out of poverty, “explains Michael Pryce, Hope Board member and Director at National Australia Bank. "All proceeds will be used to help alleviate the suffering of the most vulnerable people we work with."
Special guests at the 2011 Annual Benefit will include, Consul General Noel Kilkenny and his wife Hanora O'Dea Kilkenny, and local musicians.
Mike Carthy at Rosie’s is kindly providing the venue and food. There will be a cash bar and prizes and suggested donations at the door start at $30 and up. The Manhattan Club at Rosie O’Grady’s is located at 52nd and 7Ave and the event is 6:00pm - 9:00pm.
