HKA’s 10th-Anniversary Gala celebration, held at the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association on Saturday, October 21, was a resounding success. In addition to a good time being had by all, the sold-out event well-exceeded the organizers’ fund-raising goals. The evening’s special guest, Kenya’s Deputy Ambassador to the United States, David Kahiro Gacheru, congratulated HKA on its work in Kenya over the last ten years and stressed the importance of such philanthropy in helping Kenyan communities to develop their local infrastructure. Since its birth, HKA has raised over $170,000 to fund infrastructure and healthcare projects in the Keroka area. A highlight of the Gala was when members of Hopewell Valley Central High School’s Con Brio student a cappella choral group sang the Kenyan national anthem in Swahili. Funds raised at the Gala will go towards supporting HKA’s new goal, which is to focus on education, enterprise and empowerment (EEE). HKA thanks the many business, organizational and private sponsors, donors and contributors of funds, goods, services, time or talent that helped shape the event. A full listing of all sponsors, donors and contributors can be found by clicking on Gala Supporters.

Here is a press release on the Gala: HKA Gala post-event thank-you.
