The evening offers live entertainment, a complementary Indian buffet, and a wide range of Heineken brands for refreshments.

MCF Academy Charity Auction Invite

This evening promises to deliver a good time for all with an abundance of fun and festivities, all for a good cause. The MCF Academy will be the first school in Liberia to provide free education, including room and board, to its students — orphans who are victims of the recent civil war in Liberia. The goal is to educate as many Liberian children as MCF can support, as these children are the future of Liberia. Archi-Tectonics has offered to design the MCF Academy pro-bono to support the great efforts of the MCF to house, feed, and educate 200 orphans.

Please come and support this philanthropic endeavor by purchasing your ticket today and bidding on some of the wonderful items that will change the lives of those who need it most.
