The High Atlas Foundation, a nonprofit organized by RPCVs that works on locally designed and managed development projects in Morocco, is hosting its Fourth Annual NYC Reception October 15.
The event, which will include an art exhibit, sale, and silent auction, will feature Moroccan artists working with photography and mixed techniques and a book signing by Elizabeth Letts Alalou and Ali Alalou, the authors of the children's book The Butter Man.
Event chairs include an impressive list of leaders from nonprofit, academic, and governmental organizations. The list includes both the current and a former ambassador to Morocco, the director of Fordham University's Middle East Studies Program, and several nonprofit heavyweights, including Carol Bellamy, President and CEO of World Learning. The Peace Corps has its fair share of representation as honorary chairs including Darcy Neill, the former Director of Peace Corps Morocco, Tim Resch, President of Friends of Morocco, and our own NPCA President, Kevin Quigley.
The event will help The High Atlas Foundation reach its fundraising goals and give it the support it needs to continue its work in the field. It will be held at The Urban Center at the New York Palace Hotel.
