Africare News Release


Africare Celebrates Black History Month at Mahogany Restaurant and Lounge in D.C.

Washington, D.C., February 9, 2009-- In honor of Black History Month, Africare will host a Happy Hour Fête at the Mahogany Restaurant and Lounge in the Historic U Street District on February 25, 2009 from 6-9pm.

Africare was founded in 1970 when West Africa was hit with one of the most severe droughts in history. Thirty eight years later, Africare—the largest and oldest African American led development organization working on the continent of Africa-- has channeled more than $760 million in development and relief assistance to Africa through more than 2,500 projects and benefited 36 countries Africa-wide.

Much has been done thanks to the involvement of local and international communities, but there’s still much more to do! So come out and celebrate Africare’s good work and help support an excellent cause as we continue to improve lives and build futures across the African continent!

A $5 donation is appreciated at the door. Food and drink specials will be available to benefit Africare. Thanks so much for being a part of Africare’s success!
