When organizing the 10th Annual Ubuntu Fund Gala Dinner they people behind it hoped they would raise close to $1 million. The money was to be used to help the school campus the Ubuntu Fund has in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. In specific, the money was needed to build a pediatric clinic on campus as well as support their overall goal of helping the area’s underprivileged children from the time they’re born until they can start their careers. While it took all night the organizers proved to be successful raising this amount of money.
The Chairman of the Ubuntu Fund is Andrew Rolfe. He led the gala dinner where the guests were entertained by music performed by a Xhosa choir and fed great food. There were two special guests also in attendance who were Port Elizabeth students who had personally benefitted from the work the Ubuntu Fund does. Auctioneer Charlies Ross handled the charity auction that was performed that night. Some of the things that were auctioned off included a trip to South Africa, a portrait by acclaimed artist Nelson Makamo, and two paintings by Dom Pattinson.

He was a Vice President of Pepsico for five years and served as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Pret A Manger for five years as well. In 2004 he became the President of Gap Inc. International. He joined TowerBrook Capital Partners in January 2006 and serves as the Managing Director and Head of U.S. Private Equity.

Dr Akhil Reddy is a part of a new breed of professional, instead of pursuing traditional business growth and trying to be on the hyper bleeding edge of marketing and profitability to draw attention to his practice, MB2 Dental, Reddy is doing something different—he’s one of those few who are focusing on an empathic, humanitarian mission to provide quality oral healthcare to all, regardless of their ability to pay. Secondly, he’s a different kind of dentist. Graduating from University of the Pacific’s School of Dentistry with a D.D.S in dentistry, he’s gone on to be both a practicing dentist and a manager. He’s also an entrepreneur who’s bought and sold dental practices. He’s currently involved with several organizations pushing to make healthcare less of a social stigma and more accessible to all.
He’s advancing this agenda by working with MB2 Dental. Although Reddy is more business-minded by focusing on the marketing and operations part of the equation, his work with MB2 Dental has definitely made an impact on many, by empowering other dentists to run and manage their operations, as well as more direct humanitarian and philanthropic efforts by him. MB2 Dental is a company run by dentists, for dentists. He’s contributed his knowledge and experience to support other practitioners by assisting them in their business operations.His typical day, according to an Idea Mensch interview, would consist of him focusing on his practices (such as MB2 Dental, a professional support network, and social reform organization—of which Reddy is a member of), managing office work, and conducting research to further his vision of supporting and advancing human health.In order to support this, he founded JustHealth510.
As the director justhealth510.org, his team consists of a diverse group of healthcare professionals from California’s Bay Area community who have personally endured oppression and injustice—especially when it comes to healthcare. Right now, justhealth510 is starting with dental care. Reddy and his team recognize dental health service as one of the most expensive and least accessible services. They’re stepping in to help fill the needs of the underserved.Akhil Reddy is intent on changing the gross social inequity that is rarely spoken about—dental and oral health accessibility.JustHealth510’s ultimate goal, however, is beyond providing a mere band-aid fix, reliant on donations and goodwill.If you’d like to be part of something new and be on the bleeding edge of global reform and positive change, consider visiting justhealth510.org
JHSF Participacaoes is one of the oldest and most famous real estate development firms in the country of Brazil. Founded in 1972, by Fabio Auriemo, the firm has been responsible for building some of the largest and most noteworthy architectural marvels of the country. These have included airports, luxury shopping centers and some of the most recognizable luxury residential condominiums in South America. It has been instrumental in the development of Brazil into a first-world destination for tourists and the global elite.
Auriemo led the company through the 70s, 80s and 90s, growing it into Brazil’s unquestioned heavyweight champion of real estate development. In 1993, Fabio Auriemo’s son, Jose AuriemoNeto, began working at the firm. He rose through the ranks, working a series of managerial positions and developing his leadership skills and vision for the company. In 2001, Fabio Auriemo stepped aside, taking his long overdue retirement. From that moment on, AuriemoNeto assumed the reins of the firm, leading the company on to become one of the largest and most profitable real estate development firms, not only in Brazil but also in all of Latin America. Today, JHSF Participacaoes has a presence in three countries, including the United States. It also has a portfolio of hundreds of properties in cities from Rio De Janeiro to Salvador.
Throughout the 2000, AuriemoNeto oversaw a period of massive growth in the company and its prospects. In 2007, he decided to take the company public. The initial public offering, the largest of its kind in the real estate luxury sector in Brazil, generated more than $100 million. Although that sounds like a lot of money now, AuriemoNeto was able to increase the company’s market capitalization more than tenfold, leading to a current valuation of well over $1 billion. This remarkable growth took place in under a decade, making AuriemoNeto one of the most successful real estate CEOs in Brazilian history.
Today, the firm has dozens of projects in development and is operating its luxury condominium, office space and shopping space portfolio. AuriemoNeto believes the Brazil’s future is brighter than ever.
Fabletics is a brand that has gained a lot of traction over the years and is something that most people are able to use no matter what type of exercise they enjoy doing. It is a brand that has come a long way in the time that they have been in business and is something that has given people a chance to make sure that they can do what they need to be able to get more out of the options that they have. Kate Hudson helped to develop Fabletics so that she could show people that they can have fun athletic clothes at a price that is affordable and in a way that is convenient for them to get. Now, the company is branching out and Kate Hudson is helping with those changes.
Workout clothes can often be very boring. That can make women feel self-conscious while they are working out and may even discourage them from getting the workouts that they need to be healthy. Fabletics is battling this and making sure that they can help people with the options that they have and with the things that they need to get better with the things they are doing. From fun patterns to cuts that are made to fit everyone, Fabletics caters to women who want to look great while they are working out.
Some women may think that having these fashionable workout clothes may come at a premium but Fabletics is made in a way that allows the company to reduce the price of the clothing. Women who use Fabletics may be able to get more out of the money that they have because the clothes are so much less expensive than other brands. The company doesn’t skimp on quality, though, and the Fabletics outfits are high-quality and made for even the highest endurance sports.
One thing that sets Fabletics apart from other companies is that they want to make sure that their customers are getting the most convenient experience possible. One of the things that the company does is make sure that their customers only have to do a few things to get the clothes that they want. After taking the style quiz, Fabletics customers are given a few outfits to choose from based on their preferences. Once they choose what they want to be able to wear, it’s delivered to their door every month.
Since it is so important to Fabletics to cater to women and to provide the most convenient options for them, the company wants to give them everything that they need no matter how they shop. One of the things that Fabletics is branching out to do is selling their clothes on Amazon. They are doing this to give women one more place to shop for Fabletics clothes. It is also a more convenient option for people who want to be able to get their clothing items quicker than if they were purchasing them from the Fabletics website where everything used to have to be done.
