Cause Effect Agency produced a fundraising event for our client Hope North on September 18th at City Winery in Manhattan. The event honored Mary-Louise Parker’s commitment to the organization and featured performances by Rufus Wainwright, ELEW, Sahr Ngaujah (“Fela!”) and Hope North founder Okello Sam.
Alec Baldwin, Hunter Parrish, Parker Posey, Adrian Grenier, Jeffrey Wright, Jemima Kirke, Ebony Jo-Ann, and Uzo Aduba attended the event to show their support for the students of Hope North. It was a memorable evening of music and dancing that cleared over $100,000 for a truly worthy cause, including proceeds from an online auction at Charitybuzz with celebrity experiences with Susan Sarandon, Mary-Louise Parker, Parker Posey, Mariska Hargitay, Rachael Ray, Whoopi Goldberg, Bradley Whitford and more.
Cause Effect Agency wants to thank our event sponsors for their generous support: Hope for Humans, Ericsson, Aegis Living, Micato Safaris, Lalela Project & Andrea Kerzner, Shakti Warriors, Elizabeth Cuthrell & Steve Tuttleman, WME, WhyHunger, PanAfrican Investment Company, The Parsons Family Foundation, Happy Herbert’s, Showtime, The Jones Group, and Full Picture.
