“Rise Up” was an exceptionally successful night featuring various DJs, live performers, a full bar, interactive art activities, 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. All proceeds from the night will go towards the projects coordinated in Ethiopia by Children of Light.



The night was made possible only with the support of our volunteers who provided their services for free; we thank all our friends from graphic designers, photographers, caterers, artists, dancers, DJs, bartenders, coordinators and all the extra hands that were essential to the success of the night. We thank Studio Bar, Magnolia Event Boutique and all our very special guests and donors.

We look forward to the growth of Children of Light and the expansion of our community.
