AFRICAN RAINFOREST CONSERVANCY'S ANNUAL GALA
Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff and designer Nicole Miller were snapped recently at the African Rainforest Conservancy's 24th Annual Artists For Africa Gala at the Tribeca Rooftop.
ABOUT ARTISTS FOR AFRICA
ARC’s signature event is its annual Artists for Africa benefit, which has raised over $1 million during the past two decades to support grassroots community development projects and conservation in East African rainforests. In addition to auctioning fine art by a select group of artists whose work embodies the spirit and beauty of Africa, a unique aspect of the event is bestowing the name of a newly discovered species from the rainforest of Tanzania on someone who has made a significant contribution to advancing ARC’s mission. Past recipients of the New Species Award include actors Harrison Ford and James Gandolfini, eco-activist Gloria Flora, carbon credit pioneer Dorjee Sun, and NASA’s top climate scientist Dr. James Hansen.
