Powering Potential's 10th Anniversary Celebration

The Hemingway African Gallery

Powering Potential is happy to announce that we are holding a reception launching the 10th Anniversary Celebration of our service in Tanzanian education on June 9th, 2016! Our event will be held from 5pm to 8pm at: 

Manhattan Art & Antiques Center 
Gallery 96 
1050 Second Ave. (56th St.) 
New York, NY 10022 

The cost is $50 per person with wine, hors d'oeuvres, and a silent auction for attendees. If you wish to attend, see instructions below.

Curious on Tanzania
We are delighted to have Curious on Tanzania as a sponsor of our event! Founder Justa Lujwangana will provide a variety of Tanzanian hors d'oeuvres for your sampling pleasure. 

Curious on Tanzania is a social traveling platform that spreads awareness of Tanzanian culture, cuisine and arts. Having attended previous events hosted by our sponsor, we can say that our guests are in for a treat!

Heritage Link Brands
Heritage Link Brands will provide wine as well. The company maintains a consumer base of over 4,000 outlets, representing the following brand name labels: Seven Sisters, House of Mandela, M'hudi, One World, and Casa Valduga.

They are committed to highlighting African culture, entrepreneurship and fair trade policy. Be sure to look for these brands at your local retailers.

Corks on Columbus, a wine retailer
located on Manhattan's Upper West Side, is also sponsoring our event. Their goal is to
offer customers quality wines from
lesser known producers while offering many of the well-established names you have grown to know and love. They provide customer service that caters to both the sophisticated wine buyer and the novice. Their store is a go-to destination for wine to enjoy summer evenings in the City That Never Sleeps.

Serena Hotels
Corporate Sponsor Serena Hotels is also lending a helping hand by offering two vacation packages for our Silent Auction: 2 nights for two at Lake Manyara Serena Safari Lodge and 2 nights for two at Kirawira Serena Camp (Serengeti). We commend Serena Hotels for their efforts to support Tanzanian education.

Swahili is the language of Tanzania. The following African proverbs are another taste of that beautiful language:

Kila ufanyacho kifanye vema.
Whatever you do, do it well.

Mwenye kujitahidi hufula.
The one who makes an effort will succeed.
