Hollywood Charity Event Raises Awareness, Funds for Global Water Foundation

LionessLA dedicated the company's two-year anniversary celebration to the foundation

LionessLA, a Southern California-based event marketing and production firm, helped raise awareness and funds for the Global Water Foundation at Nightscape, an event celebrating the company’s two-year anniversary and kicking off this year’s Summer Nightlife Series.

“The Global Water Foundation is honored to be part of such an exciting event,” said Johan Kriek, founder and international director of the Global Water Foundation. “We are overwhelmed by the widely growing support for our Foundation and its efforts to provide suitable drinking water and sanitation to needy communities worldwide.”

Each year, LionessLA dedicates their anniversary celebration to a nonprofit organization to help raise funds and awareness for the charity at the annual event. Past charities include NextAid, RAINN and Haven House of Los Angeles.

Established in 2005, the Global Water Foundation is dedicated to providing clean water and adequate sanitation in areas where accessibility and supply are lacking or have been compromised. The foundation completed its first project in 2006, delivering clean water to more than 15,000 people in eastern Uganda, and is currently working in Manta, Ecuador, to repair a destroyed pipeline that has left a community of more than 1,700 members without regular access to clean water.

The event was held on Thursday, June 26 at the Republic Restaurant and Lounge in West Hollywood, Calif. In addition to Dasani and Evian, sponsors include Burke Williams Spa and Larabar.
