2013 Experience Kanaval Gala & Auction
Meds & Food for Kids’ second annual “Experience Kanaval” Gala & Auction, held on February 9, 2013 at the St. Louis Science Center was an amazing success! Nearly 500 friends and supporters soaked up the sounds of an authentic Haitian RaRa band and swayed to the rhythms of a Haitian dance troupe all evening long. The “marketplace” that housed our silent auction of Haitian art was a unique shopping experience where guests shopped for colorful treasures beneath palm fronds and Haitian decor. Everyone was served up a delicious Haitian inspired dinner in the festively decorated Science Center’s Exploradome, which mirrored the “Spirit of RaRa” theme.
Most importantly, everyone was inspired by MFK’s mission to save lives and ignite economic development in Haiti. To all of our sponsors, donors, guests and friends, we owe you all a HUGE thank you! Thanks to your generous support, we raised over $400,000! By standing with us, you are helping ensure that every deserving “peanut” gets their chance to grow!
