TFV Fashion Charity Gala in aid of Support For Africa held on 30th July 2012Fashion & LifestyleNews & Features
On the 30th July 2012, The Future Vintage (TFV) will be hosting a Fashion Charity Gala, Bohemian Africa, in aid of the charity Support For Africa (SFA) at the Music Room, in London’s exclusive Mayfair.
Entertainment for the evening will include an African-themed catwalk show featuring the works of ten designers, live performances by upcoming artists, and a charity auction set up by Nigerian entertainer Patti Boulaye to raise funds for the charity.
With the aim to raise awareness and funds to support those suffering from HIV/AIDS and Malaria in the Sub-Saharan regions of Africa, the charity has since used donations to build much needed health centres.
The charity has received support from a number of celebrities including Didier Drogba, Thierry Henry, Emma Nobel, Uri Geller, Cliff Richard and many others.
Speaking on the aim of the charity, Patti Boulaye comments: “SFA Clinics play a role in creating awareness and in educating rural communities about HIV/AIDS and Malaria through outreach programmes, as well as providing counseling to sufferers of these diseases. We hope to extend the programmes to encourage the communities to be creative in a commercial and educational sense so as to be better able to be self sufficient.”
The TFV team members have a strong desire to emphasise educational initiatives.
The Fashion Charity Gala will celebrate the success and hard work of SFA and will help to raise money for future healthcare clinics to be built.
Regina N’day, founder of The Future Vintage.
Regina N’day, the Founder and Director of The Future Vintage said: “SFA clinics continue to create awareness to educate key members of these communities about HIV/AIDS and Malaria. The Future Vintage team, sponsors and designers are really proud to be associated with The Prince’s Trust, Label M, Lush and Carmex.“
A night to remember, Bohemian Africa will be held at The Music Room in London’s Mayfair on 30th July 2012 with the after party held at The Flute Bar & Lounge on Oxford Street.
