Past Events





Thank you to the Westchester Cycle Club and Westchester County Parks for partnering us for our DAR Bike Benefit today. We had lots of bikers come out to join us on the Bronx River Parkway in White Plains, New York. Thank you to everyone for coming out to our Bike Benefit. We raised a couple hundred dollars which will help educate Tanzanian orphans. It was great to see people enjoying the day and to bike with so many DAR supporters!

Corso Roma Market – Spilimbergo, Italy

We partnered with the Rotaract Club Maniago-Spilimbergo in Italy. They held a fundraiser for The DAR Project at their weekly market in Spilimbergo this weekend. We had many volunteers who helped raise money for orphans in Tanzania. Thank you to everyone who came out to the market fundraiser! Through our joint efforts, we were able to raise funds for the DAR Learning Center project at the Chamazi Orphanage. The funds raised at the market will help defray the cost of painting, cleaning, and rebuilding the Learning Center. This summer we will be stocking the center with books and computers for the children at the orphanage to have access to these enriching educational materials.


The DAR Art Benefit – New York, NY

We featured seven artists including photographers, illustrators and songwriters at our DAR Art Benefit at the Liederkranz on the Upper East Side. Our guests took part in a silent auction and bid on work by each of our artists. We had a singer/songwriter who performed his own music and even performed a song he wrote for The DAR Project. Our guests were part of our raffle where we auctioned off DAR merchandise and Riesling wine. We raised enough money to send three more orphans in Tanzania to college in the upcoming school year. Thank you to everyone who came out to support our cause! We can’t wait to see you at our next event!


The Inaugural DAR 5K- Liverpool, NY

Our first 5K sold out to 300 runners – we had almost 50 volunteers come out to help us during the event as well. Runners raced at Onondaga Lake Parkway in Central New York. After running through the finish line arch, racers were invited to our finishers’ party and to get a massage. We were able to raise funds to send five more orphans in Tanzania to college. Thank you to each of our sponsors and DAR 5K participants! See you in 2014! www.daraces.org


Zaza's Benefit Night- Scarsdale, NY

Thank you to everyone who came out to support The DAR Project at Zaza's! It was a great event! A huge thank you goes out to all of our supporters who made this possible including Zaza's Italian Restaurant, the Andrew Lecoche Band, and all of our donors. We could not do what we do without each of you! We raised enough to send another student to college in the 2012-2013 school year. Asante sane!

December 25th, 2012 to January 1st, 2013

Over Christmas, we visited the Chamazi Orphanage in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania and the Kiwakico Orphanage in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania. We delivered clothes and presents to over 150 orphans. We also met the 5 college students we sponsored who are currently in college in Tanzania. It was an amazing time.
