MacDella Cooper & Friends

PRESENT

“L’AFRICANA SUMMERFEST 2011”

Music, Fashion, Culture, Cuisine, & DJs Universe & Stiletto

You are invited to join MacDella Cooper, founder of the MacDella Cooper Foundation and her esteemed friends and colleagues, along with the East End’s most high profile and influential audience of VIPs, celebrities, and media on Saturday July 23, 2011 at 3pm for the Opening Day of Polo at the Bridgehampton Polo Club.

Following Polo, MacDella Cooper will host L’AFRICANA SUMMER FEST in Southampton New York. The Red Carpet Cocktail reception and the Taste of Africa Banquet will kick off at 6:30 pm with Afro-Electronic music by DJ Universe. The night will continue with live music, dance performances as well as a DJ party hosted by headliner DJ Stiletto spinning her eclectic blend of sound.

The evening, hosted by News anchor, Carol Wilkinson will also include an MCF multimedia presentation by Thomas Tafuto. A collection of African inspired dresses, jewelry and accessories designed exclusively for L’Africana will be auctioned off. Tickets range in price from $150 for an individual ticket to $10,000 for corporate sponsorships.

L’Africana is a brand platform built around the design, creation, promotion, and distribution of African fashion, art, music, accessories, culture & cuisine. To date, African-inspired brands have primarily catered to Africans and a small number of non-Africans. L’Africana aspires to be a brand with strong international appeal through the fusion of African aesthetics and sensibilities with modern design, quality, and workmanship.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the MCF Academy for orphans and abandoned children in Monrovia, Liberia. The MCF Academy is the first tuition free boarding school dedicated to orphan and abandoned children in post-war Liberia. The Academy opened its doors on Christmas Day 2010 and will ultimately house and educate 200 children.
