This year Plaster House hosted its 4th Annual cocktail fundraiser at Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge. Plaster House is a Rehabilitative Surgery Program that provides corrective surgery and rehabilitation to children who have congenital or acquired disabilities. As part of its Corporate Social Responsibility, Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge participated as an active sponsor towards this great cause by providing the venue and catering.
Nearly 100 guests participated in the silent auction that was setup at the Lounge of the Bistro. The event was a true success, as Plaster House managed to raise over USD 23,000 through its auctions, ticket sales and beautiful accessories provided by Shanga.
Richard Beatty who acted as a superb MC, cheerfully kept the guests engaged and entertained alongside David’s amazing live band. The evening was a perfect synopsis of a week that saw Surgeons who travelled from the US, performing over 50 surgeries days prior the event. In many ways the theme of the event, ‘Surgery Strong’ was well captured throughout the event.
Although Plaster House missed an important member of their team during the event, Sara Rejman, who is the organizations’ Director, as she is currently undergoing cancer treatment in Australia.
Graham Stobbart, General Manager of Elewana Arusha Coffee Lodge and Keira DiSpirito, made their speeches to thank the sponsors for their continuous contribution towards the cause, and to inform them on the amazing work that has been transforming lives.
