Karma International sponsors Rescue Our Angels event on April 23, 2013 in Chicago, benefiting Jenny McCarthy’s Generation Rescue!
Karma, a social membership organization that combines the benefits of executive networking, philanthropy and luxurious events, has been named a sponsor of the 6th annual Rescue Our Angels event, in an effort to raise awareness of autism and generate funds to support families coping with autism diagnoses. All proceeds raised at the event will go towards Generation Rescue, the leading autism awareness non-profit organization supported by star, model and actress, Jenny McCarthy.
The Rescue Our Angels event will feature red carpet arrivals, celebrity guest appearances, a live auction and hands-on booths or ‘experience zones’ to increase autism awareness, among other entertainment. The sponsorship marks the second time in less than a year that Karma and Generation Rescue have joined forces, after Karma donated proceeds from its 2012 Kandyland event to support ten families coping with autism.
Rescue Our Angels complements Karma’s recent expansion into Chicago through its Karma Chapters program – a new member-driven initiative to bring Karma events to different cities across the nation. Earlier this month, Karma Member, Roshan Parikh, hosted the first Chicago-based Cocktail Social at the Trump Tower, in which dozens of attendees celebrated such national growth of the organization.
Marvin Epstein, E.V.P of Business Development and Philanthropy for Karma International, said: “Karma is proud to once again partner with such a worthy charity like Generation Rescue. As autism diagnoses continue to increase at a staggering rate, affecting nearly 1 in 50 children, organizations must raise awareness and provide never-ending support to the children and families in need. We take pride in our continuous philanthropic outreach, and with the recent expansion of Karma into Chicago, it was no question we wanted to contribute by sponsoring the Rescue Our Angels event.”
Rescue Our Angels will take place on Tuesday, April 23rd at Studio Paris in Chicago, IL. Over 400 VIP guests, including Jenny McCarthy, are expected to arrive at 7pm CST. For more information, please visit http://www.rescueourangels.com/
