HAF will host its fifth annual New York City reception – a Moroccan hefla – on the evening of Friday, November 6th (7pm-10pm) at the American Institute of Architects New York. Approximately 150 guests, including Moroccan expatriates, returned Peace Corps Volunteers, politicians, business leaders, and academicians, will take part in the evening’s festivities that include Moroccan hors d’oeuvres, a traditional tea pouring ceremony,
henna artists, and music.
The event will raise funds for fruit tree planting with rural Moroccan communities, including 20,000 walnut and cherry tree saplings for the Kate Jeans-Gail Tree Nursery Memorial. Since 2003, HAF has planted nearly 150,000 fruit trees, benefitting 20,000 rural people, with the goal of planting one million treesthroughout Morocco. Download the project description to learn more.
