A Successful Night for Orphans Africa

On the evening of March 17, 2018 Orphans Africa celebrated our 9th annual Orphans Africa Benefit Dinner and Auction and the many ways you have helped Orphans Africa grow. This marvelous benefit was packed with a multitude of new guests and long-term friends of OA. The evening was hosted by legendary Northwest Sportscaster who has a 17 year background in Seattle broadcasting and 13 years with KCPQ (Fox Television), Mr. Keith Shipman. Our auctioneer, Mari Neubauer, with Keith made this a lively event including the dessert dash and live auction rounds, helping the auction gross over $90,000. These funds will be used towards a variety of OA projects, including a Drilled Water Well at the Isandula Center, a Library, and the building of an Agriculture and Animal Husbandry Program at Mwaji Secondary School. 

Many thanks to Vail, Cross-Euteneier & Associates for being our highest paying sponsors for this year’s Benefit Dinner and Auction. We would also like to thank our auction committee and the volunteers for a successful evening, and YOU…the OA supporters and donors who gave so generously. You made a BIG impact in the lives of Tanzanian orphans! THANK YOU!
