Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2012
Frankie Verdugo, President of The HOME Foundation, Proudly Supports the Unstoppable Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to working with in-country partners to deliver a holistic approach to educating children in developing countries. Nationally Featured on FOX, ABC, NBC, & CBS Money Watch, Frankie Verdugo, when asked about the Gala said, “The event was a great opportunity for many to come together and truly make a difference. The spirit of the evening was focused on realizing what goes on outside of our own little world, from experiencing the ‘water walk’ to viewing a video of a grateful young girl who was ecstatic with the opportunity of being able to go to high school. This was definitely a night to remember. Thank you to all who came out in support of Unstoppable Foundation!”
The Unstoppable Foundation hosted their 3rd Annual Gala at the legendary historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, where Grammy Award Winner Nelly Furtado matched the donations dollar for dollar. This special evening of hope and inspiration was designed to demonstrate that it is possible to provide an education to every child on the planet. The goal of this heart-warming event was to build an all girls secondary school in Kenya for 200 young girls. 100% of the proceeds benefit Canadas Craig Kielburgers organization, Free The Children. Craig gave a poignant opening speech as he addressed the audience and shared about Nelly Furtados inspiration behind her support.
A very happy and elated Founder of the Unstoppable Foundation, Cynthia Kersey was thrilled when she was told that $ 250,000 was raised that evening to support the girls in Kenya. It was an experiential interactive evening with the Water Walk. Guests had an opportunity to experience carrying 5-gallon water jugs – 40 lbs each that the girls in Kenya carry up to three to four times daily. This task is crucial to help their families survive day to day.
