We Are Family Foundation

 


We Are Family Foundation
®

 

honors

 

Sting & Trudie Styler

 

for humanitarian efforts

 

With a Concert Featuring

 

Sting, Nile Rodgers & Chic

& special guests

 

The We Are Family Foundation® (WAFF), a not-for-profit organization founded by legendary songwriter and producer, Nile Rodgers, will honor Humanitarian Award recipients Sting and Trudie Styler at its inaugural We Are Family HONORS event on Thursday, April 11, 2013, at Manhattan Center’s Grand Ballroom in New York City.

 

Artists and activists Sting and Trudie Styler will receive the Humanitarian Award, which honors those in the public eye who have made tremendous efforts and inroads to improving the human condition throughout the world. Previous recipients of the Humanitarian Award include musical legends Jackson Browne, Peter Gabriel, Sir Elton John, and television and radio host Larry King.

 

Sting and Trudie Styler are committed to helping make a difference for children around the world and protecting the environment. In 1989, the couple founded the Rainforest Fund, an organization devoted to protecting rainforests and their indigenous peoples. To date they have raised more than $30 million for the cause and have expanded to a network of interconnected organizations in more than 20 countries. Sting’s support for human rights organizations such as Amnesty International and Live Aid mirrors his art in its universal outreach. From raising funds and awareness for the UNICEF End Child Exploitation and United Against AIDS campaigns to visiting tsunami-affected Sri Lanka in solidarity with those affected by the devastating disaster, Trudie Styler has been a leading voice on behalf of some of the poorest and most vulnerable children on earth.

 

“The We Are Family Foundation was born as a result of the 9/11 tragedy, after which I asked the question, ‘Can we organize for peace half as effectively as others do for hate?’” said Nile Rodgers, Founder & Chairman of the We Are Family Foundation. “My song, ‘We Are Family,’ was the inspiration to bring people together, celebrate our differences and share ideas across borders in order to solve some of the bigger problems facing our world. We are inspired by Sting and Trudie and their dedication to making the world a better place.”

 

The funds raised will support WAFF’s mission and existing programs including WAFF’s signature program, Three Dot Dash, which identifies, supports and mentors Global Teen Leaders actively working on programs that address basic human needs and promoting a more peaceful world; and TEDxTeen, a global educational platform for extraordinary teenagers to share their stories and inspire millions.

 

Tickets for We Are Family HONORS can be purchased in advance at wearefamilyfoundation.org. Contributions are fully tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law; the non-deductible portion of each VIP Ticket purchased is $75, and each Concert Ticket purchased is $50. All who purchased tables or dinner tickets to the We Are Family Foundation Gala 2.0 on January 31, 2013, will receive complimentary admission to We Are Family HONORS.

VIP arrivals begin at 6:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, 2013, prior to the VIP reception at 7:00 p.m., which will be followed by the awards ceremony and concert at 8:15 p.m. Manhattan Center’s Grand Ballroom is located at 311 West 34th Street in New York City.
