Nigerian born, American singer, Jidenna was absolutely dapper at FACE Africa’s 7th Annual WASH Gala, which took place on Saturday March 26, 2016 at NeueHouse Madison Square in New York City.
The Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Gala were on the heels of World Water Day, which was March 22nd and sought to bring awareness to the growing clean water epidemic in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Of the over 300 guests who stepped out in sparkling gowns and dapper suits in support of FACE Africa’s work and mission and helped raise $165,000, Jidenna looked absolutely outstanding in a pink and green two piece suit, complete with a white shirt, blue tie and waist coat. He finished off his dapper look with a pocket square, gold accessories and his signature sleek hair.
Benefits from this year’s WASH Gala will be used to increase FACE Africa’s mission outside of Liberia as well as support the organization’s WASH in Schools (WINS) Program, an initiative in partnership with the Liberian Ministry of Education to better the future of school-children across Liberia through the affordability of safe water and handwashing and sanitation facilities in schools.
Saran Kaba Jones, the founder and CEO of FACE Africa said; “As always, we were so touched and humbled by the outpouring of love and support from our sponsors, donors and the hundreds of guests who came out in support of our work and mission. It was truly a magical evening of celebration, giving and inspiration.”
The WASH Gala, was hosted by celebrated journalist Zain Verjee. Other guests at the distinguished event included celebrity stylist Ty Hunter, Entourage star Adrian Grenier, actors, Gbenga Akinnagbe and Adepero Oduye as well as Opal Tometti, one of the founders of the Black Lives Matters movement.
