The Many Hats Institute
and NIAC Fundraiser
In response to the devastating earthquake in Iran that destroyed the ancient city of Bam and took the lives of 45,000 Iranians, the Many Hats Institute and the National Iranian American Council (NIAC) hosted back-to-back benefits at Sesto Senso and Andalu on January 22 to benefit the Earthquake Relief Fund for Orphans (ERFO). “Guest” bartenders served up cocktails at Sesto Senso and ended the evening at Andalu with dancing to cutting-edge house music by up-and-coming local DJ’s. The event, which raised about $6,000, drew a great mix of both younger and older Iranians and non-Iranians.
The ERFO plans to create an individual fund for each of the estimated 2,000 children orphaned from the tragic earthquake.
