On October 1, the 14+ Foundation will be hosting its 3rd Annual Cocktail Benefit. The foundation will be fundraising for their ongoing contributions and support of the Chipakata Children’s Academy in Africa. The 14+ Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 2012 by Joseph Mizzi and Nchimunya Wulf. Its mission is to build and operate schools and orphanages in rural African communities.

The Chipakata Children’s Academy in Zambia, Africa, will double as a primary school education facility, and as a refuge and orphanage for children of need in the local community. These children will be provided with full-time housing and care. The curriculum will incorporate arts-based programs, which is a fundamental part of the foundation’s mission. The Chipakata Village desperately needed a school in their community as young children have had to walk over 4 miles to arrive at the nearest institution.

Without a doubt, this is an amazing cause. The cocktail reception will be held from 6-8:30PM at the Angel Orensanz Center, the oldest surviving synagogue building in NYC. In 1992, it became an artistic and cultural resource open to artists, writers, leaders and thinkers from around the world. The jaw-dropping Gothic Revival interior draws events from MoMA, The Whitney Museum and The Guggenheim. Even legendary fashion designer Alexander McQueen was known to go there for creative inspiration.

Event partners include: The Architecture & Design Film Festival; Major Food Group; Don Q Rum; Casebianche; Flavor Paper; Del Toro; Carl Hansen & Son; Ste Michelle; Bass; The Very Black Project and Baci.

The Angel Orensanz Foundation is located at 172 Norfolk Street, between Houston and Stanton Streets. The closest subway stops are Delancey Street (F Train), 2nd Avenue (F Train), Essex Street (J,M,Z Trains).
