Black Tie International:
Champions of Education Benefit

 

      “CHAMPIONS OF EDUCATION BENEFIT”

ON JULY 24, 2010
 
BRIDGEHAMPTON, NY

 

 
MCF founder, MacDella Cooper &

MCF founder, MacDella Cooper &
Countess LuAnn de Lesseps

 
 
New York, July 2010—On Saturday, July 24, 2010, the MacDella Cooper Foundation (MCF), a 501(c)3 international charitable organization devoted to educating Liberian youth, hosted the annual Champions of Education benefit. The event kicked off with an exclusive reception at the Opening Day of the Mercedes Benz Polo Challenge, and was followed by a private dinner and red carpet reception for VIP guests.
 
MCF founder, MacDella Cooper co-hosted the event with Jill Zarin and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps (The Real Housewives of New York), Caroline Manzo, Dina Manzo, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita (The Real Housewives of New Jersey)  as well as the 2010 Host Committee, which included a wide range of celebrities, business owners and philanthropists.
 
The event started at 3pm with a private reception at the Opening Day of Bridgehampton Polo, one of the Hamptons most exclusive summer events.  Guests celebrated the MCF while they watched the first match of the Bridgehampton Polo season  at the Mercedes Benz Polo Challenge.  
 
Following the reception, VIP guests joined MacDella Cooper and the Host Committee for a red carpet reception, silent auction and private dinner at the home of Erika & Kelley Millet in Bridgehampton.
 
The Champions of Education benefit was sponsored by The Segal Family Foundation and Argentine Estate Winery Doña Paula. All proceeds from the event will benefit the MCF Academy for orphans and abandoned children in Monrovia, Liberia. The MCF Academy will be the first school dedicated to orphan and abandoned children in post-war Liberia to be founded by a female refugee of the civil war. The Academy is scheduled to open in the fall of 2010 and will ultimately house and educate 200 children. Acclaimed architect Winka Dubbeldam, principal of the world-renowned firm Archi-Tectonics in New York, designed the sustainable MCF Academy.
 
MacDella Cooper is one of thousands of refugees of the Liberian civil war. At the age of 12, Cooper’s home was raided by rebels and her stepfather was captured. MacDella and her two teenage brothers escaped their town, dodging bullets and passing dead bodies on the roadside. It took them six months to get to a refugee camp on the Ivory Coast, and another three years for their immigration papers to come through before MacDella and her brothers could be reunited with their mother in the US. Cooper embraced her new life in the United States and went on to get a degree from The College of New Jersey. She moved to New York City to work in fashion and modeling, with her pictures appearing in Glamour magazine. Today, Cooper has become known as Liberia’s Angel, attracting international investors to Liberian markets and creating awareness of the plight of Liberian children through her humanitarian initiatives.
