Turquoise Mountain Summer Fundraiser
Saturday, August 2, 2014 from 4:30 PM to 11:00 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Please join us for a summer evening of great food and local wine, live music from the Sofa
Kings, and a live auction. This year, we have a phenomenal guest speaker, Shoshana Clark
Stewart, the CEO of Turquoise Mountain.
Turquoise Mountain’s project in Kabul has expanded since we first started working with
them. From building primary schools for girls, the project has now expanded to include a health
clinic and an Arts Institute which teaches traditional Afghan arts, empowering local craftsmen
and women to produce beautiful items which can be sold overseas to uniquely stimulate the
local economy.Turquoise Mountain works to promote the production and distribution of high-
end Afghan crafts and designs worldwide. Since 2008, Turquoise Mountain has sold over three
million worth of traditional Afghan woodwork, ceramics, calligraphy and jewellery. For more
information on Turquoise Mountain visit www.turquoisemountain.org.
Check out the Shoshana's TED talk and before the end you'll be as convinced as we are and have been since our initial introduction back in 2009. We look forward to seeing you at this inspiring event.
