On the evening of October 15th, the High Atlas Foundation hosted its fourth annual New York City reception at the New York Palace Hotel’s Urban Center. Over eighty guests joined us for a Moroccan art exhibit, sale, and silent auction – proceeds from the evening will go towards implementing HAF’s first potable water project in the Tifnoute Valley. This project will bring clean drinking water to five villages (approximately 1,600 people) in one of the most remote regions of Morocco.
Thank you to our featured artists – Hamid Kachmar, Alan Keohane, Julie Klear Essakalli, and Dennie Kirtley – for helping to make the evening so special, as well as Elizabeth Letts Alalou for being with us to sign copies of The Butter Man. We are grateful to event sponsors Merrill Lynch and Oussaden Tours, and to Tagine Dining Gallery and Zerza for donating the delicious Moroccan food. We look forward to seeing everyone again next year!
