MacDella Cooper Foundation Hamptons Charity Event

Saturday was my doing good and partying in style day. That’s what best describes the MacDella Cooper Foundation benefit held in the Hamptons. The event started with the polo match. It was my first time attending a polo match and I have to say it was quite an experience.

I was hoping to learn the basic rules of polo but then realized noone was watching the match. Hamptons polo was all about socializing, drinking champagne and people watching with some horses running in the background.

MacDella Cooper Foundation

This picture says so much! It’s the happy children in Liberia, who got help thanks to MacDella Cooper Foundation. The foundation’s goal is to provide food, clothing and shelter to the Liberian youth in need, especially orphans and abandoned children. Its goal is to make sure the children get free education. MacDella Foundation is working towards its main goal – the opening of a tuition-free school in 2010.

When I was considering charities to be involved with, I was so excited to find out about MacDella Foundation and their mission, which is so close to my heart. Being an entrepreneur, I strongly believe that education is such a mind-opening and enriching experience, which many of us take for granted but which is not available in some parts of the world.

I was so flattered when I was asked to be on the board of the foundation! What a privilege! What I love about MacDella is of course the mission but also its execution in style. What a great feeling to participate in the fun events for a good cause. This Saturday the MacDella Cooper foundation is organizing an event in the Hamptons starting with the polo match, followed by the Lalesso fashion show (Lucid New York will provide the jewelry for the Lalesso collection), the VIP dinner and the after party at Dune.

The tickets to the MacDella Foundation Hamptons benefit are still available!
