Join us for the ‘rise in the city’ benefit in NYC

Join BOND Events for rise in the city, next Wednesday October 25 in NYC!

rise in the city in a unique art exhibit and auction, created to support the work of rise (Relationships Inspiring Social Enterprise), a non-profit organisation co-founded by BOND Events that helps link local entrepreneurs in Africa to the resources they need to solve their community’s poverty problems.

All the amazing artworks you’ll see have been created especially for the event by leading architects, designers and artists from 15 different states and 11 countries. The challenge was to create a work of art that represents a block of Manhattan as well as inspiration from Lesotho, Africa, where our first project is underway.

The contributions are spectacular! Here’s a sneak peek at some of the top 10 finalists:

Every dollar raised from the event will go directly to rise’s social entrepreneurship programs.

Don’t miss your chance to view and bid on the artworks, network with leaders in architecture, eat, drink, dance and enjoy some fantastic African entertainment.

We’d love your support. Tickets are just $150 and can be purchased at until October 23.

If you are unable to attend you can still view and bid on the beautiful artworks via this online auction:
