We're having a benefit photo show!
Photos by Ellen Michelson, Bill Michelson and Mark Daye will be on display, for sale to benefit The Equality Effect – 160 Girls for the whole month of February at Java Jive, at the corner of Church and Isabella.
Here's a very short, moving video about the programme.
Click Projects to learn more about the 160 Girls initiative.
The official show opening will be Tuesday, February 1, 2011 at 6 p.m. Please come.
We'll learn a little about The Equality Effect from Flora Terah, here from Kenya; Ellen Michelson will also say a few words about the programme. We'll hear from our special guest, Glenys Babcock, founder of Pragmora, working to build peace around the world. We'll have some free and delicious nibbles; as well, Eugene Johnson of Java Jive will generously offer his coffees, teas, and juices for only $1 each.
Here's some additional information.
