I had the opportunity to attend the 2013 Gala Reception for the Rainforest Alliance, a non-profit that conserves biodiversity and sustains livelihoods. They do so by change land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior.
This evening was to raise money by silent auctions and to support the companies that make a difference for the forests. The silent auctions offered exploration trips to Costa Rica, Kenya and even Polar Bear sighting, furthermore, the silent auction offered espresso machines, theater tickets, spa treatments and much much more.
The businesses celebrated this evening included AMResorts, Barry Callebaut AG, IndoTeak Design, Kapawi Ecolodge & Reserve, Kingfisher plc,NESCAFE, Olam International Ltd and Tata Global Beverages.
The special guest star of the night was Deborah Cox – singer and the leading actress at Broadways Jekyll and Hyde.
