You're Invited: L'Africana Summerfest

On Saturday, July 23, 2011, philanthropist MacDella Cooper, Founder of the MacDella Cooper Foundation and the MCF Academy will host L'AFRICANA SUMMER FEST in Southampton New York.

The Red Carpet Cocktail reception and the Taste of Africa Banquet will kick off at 6:30 pm with DJ Stiletto spinning. The night will include special musical and dance performances starting promptly at 7:00 pm.

The evening, hosted by News anchor, Carol Wilkinson will feature a collection of African inspired dresses, jewelry and accessories designed exclusively for L 'Africana brand that will be auctioned off.

L'Africana is a brand platform built around the design, creation, promotion, and distribution of African fashion, art, music, accessories, culture & cuisine. L'Africana aspires to be a brand with
strong international appeal through the fusion of African aesthetics and sensibilities with modern design, quality, and workmanship.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the MCF Academy for orphans and abandoned children in Monrovia, Liberia. The MCF Academy is the first tuition free boarding school dedicated to orphan and abandoned children in post-war Liberia. The Academy opened its doors on Christmas Day 2010 and will ultimately house and educate 200 children.

So be sure to go out and support! (Plus, it's in the Hamptons, why not?)
