24000.ORG's 5th Annual Red Tie Gala
Benefit/Fundraiser

We are excited for 24000.ORG’s 5th Annual Red Tie Gala on Saturday, February 23, 2019, at the Hilton Garden Inn Georgetown. We will enjoy time in fellowship with a Cocktail hour sponsored by Country Boy Brewing, a Cash Bar, Live DJ, Dancing, Dinner, Silent Auction, Photobooth fun, and more! All attendees are encouraged to dress in Red Tie and Red Cocktail attire for a fun, classy night out with friends. Our goal is to raise funds for 5,000 mosquito nets to distribute in the eastern Uganda area of Africa and a borehole water well that will provide clean water to over 1000 children at a primary school in Uganda that we visited and distributed mosquito nets to this past summer. We will have several avenues to donate during this evening including Silent Auction, Lump Sum Donation, and Monthly Sponsorship. Based in Georgetown, Kentucky, 24000.ORG has been a 501(c)3 organization since February 2012. The mission of 24000.ORG is to raise awareness and funding to help alleviate the nearly 24,000 preventable deaths that happen to children around the world each day. These deaths are from preventable causes such as drinking contaminated water, malaria, lack of food, etc. Since 2012, 24000.ORG has provided over 30,000 mosquito nets to villages in Eastern Uganda to help combat malaria. We have also provided clean water to over 300 children at a school and at an orphanage in Uganda and in 2018 approved a borehole water well project that will provide clean water to over 1000 children at a primary school that we visited this past summer in Uganda. Feel free to reach out with any questions to Heather Thompson at heather@24000.org.
