Ubuntu Gala NYC – Success for South Africa and Great Trip

Maggie Gyllenhaal Ubuntu Gala NYC Classic Travel was a proud sponsor of the 2013 Ubuntu Education Fund Gala which was held on Thursday, June 6 at Gotham Hall in NYC and raised over $1 million!  Maggie Gyllenhaal, Paul Simon and Donna Karan were just a few of the celebrities who turned out for this great event.  Ubuntu is a wonderful organization which provides world-class health and educational support to the orphaned and vulnerable children of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Ubuntu ensures they can access higher education and employment.

Classic Travel, along with its Virtuoso Hotel Partners, donated 2 incredible trips to South Africa – which raised approximately $80,000 for the event.  You can take your own trip to see this beautiful country and check out the amazing work being done at the Ubuntu Centre.  After your time in Port Elizabeth, visit Johannesburg, Cape Town, stay at the most luxurious game lodges and enjoy the world’s best food and wine in the Cape Wine lands.
