Members of the African Well Fund’s board of directors will be attending The Africare Bishop John T. Walker Memorial Dinner on Friday, Nov. 5 at the National Building Museum in Washington DC. AWF supporters are invited to purchase tickets and join us at the AWF table for this event. This year’s dinner will honor Nelson Mandela for his lifetime of achievements to South Africa and the world, and will celebrate Africare’s 40 years of partnership with African communities. His Excellency is not expected to attend the event.
Attending this event will give AWF supporters the opportunity to learn firsthand about the work Africare, the organization that implements AWF-funded projects, has done in Africa for the past 40 years. All proceeds from the Bishop Walker Memorial Dinner, the nation’s largest annual fundraising event for Africa, will benefit Africare. Individual tickets for the dinner are $250 and a portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible.
If you’re interested in attending the dinner and joining the AWF table, please contact AWF Board Vice Chairman Diane Yoder at by Oct. 22.
