Align Global Consulting Hosts Fall Fest Event Benefiting Nourish International
Raleigh, North Carolina (November 21, 2012) – Align Global Consulting, in conjunction withBagchi Law, hosted a Fall Fest event benefiting Nourish International. Families from across the Research Triangle area attended the event, which featured family-styled attractions and beer tasting at the LoneRider Brewing Company where the event was held.
The funds generated by the event were given to the Nourish Venture Fund, which helps support young social entrepreneurs across the United States seeking to impact extreme poverty by starting social ventures.
“Nourish is a unique organization from the standpoint that it encourages entrepreneurship and empowerment, rather than pity. So, it only seemed fitting that we should support and celebrate Nourish in a region that is home to some of the country's brightest and best entrepreneurs,” saidSean M. King, Managing Director of Align Global Consulting.
"Nourish International is thankful for the generosity of Align Global Consulting and Bagchi Law to host this great event,” said Kelly Phoenix, Executive Director of Nourish International. “Everyday Nourish works with young social innovators using business as a tool for good to tackle extreme poverty in the developing world. With over 28 college campuses in our movement and 45 partner communities, the time is now to leverage more impact. The support of community members like Sean and Neil reminds us not only that are we not alone, but together we can create a future full of opportunity for those living in extreme poverty."
