L.W.A.L.A., which stands for “Living With A Life-long Ambition,” is about harnessing your passions and your talents and using them to support worthwhile philanthropic causes. When the 85 Broads group traveled to Kenya last summer they ended up testing over 500 people in the village and discovered that ~40% of the women tested were HIV positive as well as ~24% of the men.

Since then, the Lwala team has raised over $50,000 and on April 2nd, 2007 helped the Lwala Community Alliance (LCA) open the Lwala Community Health Clinic which sees over 80 patients a day!

Additionally, in 2008, the L.W.A.L.A. organization plans to set in motion a micro-financing arm in Lwala which will help support other needs of the village.

Natalie Portman and Swarovski Crystals have graciously signed on as their headline sponsors for the event which will feature food, a full open bar, DJ Alexandra Richards (daughter of Rolling Stone’s Keith Richards) and an Abigail Lorick (the designer for the newest show Gossip Girls) runway show debuting her Spring Line completed by the Latest DanniJo Jewels Collection.

Ticket Proceeds will go to staffing the health clinic further, improving maternity care and supporting our micro-financing efforts! They can be purchased at www.lwala.org <http://www.lwala.org/> for $100, for patrons under 30, or $200, for patrons over 30
