Last night, my group Global Kids threw a fancy to-do at the home of the French Ambassador to celebrate the launch of our new educational programs in Washington DC. Sadly I could not be in attendance to sample the delicious treats prepared by world-class chefs Daniel Boulud, Jose Andres and Michael Richard and others.
Pictured to the right are Comtesse Elisabeth de Kergorlay and Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.) with Global Kids Executive Director Evie Hantzopoulos. Check the Washington Scene website for more cool pics from the evening, featuring such dignitaries as Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), Comtesse Elisabeth de Kergorlay, Chef Daniel Boulud, and DC TV news anchor Kimberly Suiters.
I can not imagine a better place for Global Kids to expand than Washington DC, which could really use a youth organization that focuses on leadership development, global awareness and civic engagement for marginalized teens. I'm looking forward to seeing how our programs grow and evolve there.
