Henry' Buhl's A.C.E. foundation: Sunflowers After Hours

On Saturday evening (August 9th) Roar Africa attended the Sunflowers After Hours fund raiser event for Henry Buhl's A.C.E. Foundation. The Association of Community Employment Programs for the Homeless (A.C.E.), is a not-for-profit organization founded by Henry Buhl. Their mission is to enable New York City’s homeless men and women to re-enter the workforce and to achieve long term, economic self-sufficiency.

Sunflowers After Hours was hosted by Kirstin Cole of CBS 2 News at Henry's home in Southampton. Honorary Chairs Henry Buhl, Susan Sarandon and Larry Leeds. The elegant clam bake, auction and dancing was held in Henry's garden which was planted with thousands of sunflowers.

We are proud to share that the 15-day luxury Southern Africa safari donated by Roar Africa and partner lodges was the largest ticket item of the live auction which was conducted by Sotheby's Eliza Osborne. The trip will take the generous winners to some of the world's most luxurious Lodges and hotels from Kruger Park in South Africa, to Cape Town, the Cape Winelands and Mozambique. Business class flights were donated by Henry himself.
