RISING STARS RAISING UP FOR SOMALIA
The Influence Series introduces its new monthly event, The Postcard Project
New York, NY - November 4th 2011 - On November 15th, New York City’s brightest stars will gather at the Toro Lounge in The Smyth Hotel to “Raise UP for Somalia.” Founders of progressive lifestyle brand Influence Series will be launching The Postcards Project, a monthly event highlighting different cultural and geographic regions, showcasing their contemporary flair. Influence Series founders Michael “Mancini” McConnell and DJ CEO will dedicate its first installment of postcards to the East African country of Somalia. The duo partnered with some of the biggest names in the fashion, art and culinary industries to build awareness for Somalia while showcasing some of the region’s most prominent names in NYC.
Proceeds from the event will support The American Refugee Committee’s “I Am A Star” campaign and The African Future organization to help provide more assistance to organizations on the ground in Somalia fighting poverty and other civil issues in the region. The host council for this event has strong ties to Somalia and are committed to shedding light and bringing relief to the troubled country. Some of the bright stars confirmed for the event on November 15th are celebrity chef Roblé, designers Ayaan and Idyl Mohallim of the fashion line Mataano, models Fatima Siad, Ayan Elmi, Ci Ci Ali, and Rahma Mohamed, Saada Ahmed and Bravo’s Work of Art Season 1 winner artist Abdi Farah.
Event participants feel that The Postcard Project would showcase the eclectic nature of the county’s people while shedding light on the many issues affecting this country today. Host Council member Roblé says, “We are Raising UP for Somalia in hopes of not only supporting these great organizations, but also bringing national attention to the death, destruction and shortage of resources in my homeland.”
