Goodnight & Glow Results


“Goodnight & Glow” was an exceptionally successful night featuring various DJs, live drumming, belly dancing, a glow in the dark dance floor, a full bar, interactive art activities, body painting, delicious food, and an amazing crowd. As part of our vision, the organization aims to channel human creativity and passion in order to lessen the burden of poverty for the children of Gambo, Ethiopia.
