To end on a happy note this week, Contract magazine wants to help Perkins+Will spread the word about a great charity fundraiser. As a probono project, Perkins+Will is redesigning the Girls Education & Mentoring Services (GEMS). The non-profit organization seeks to empower and help young women that have been sexually exploited and trafficked in the sex industry to create a better life for themselves. To help fund the project, the firm will host a fundraising event, whcih will help to furnish the project space, at its New York offices, located at 215 Park Avenue South, 4th Floor, on July 27 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Please RSVP to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The redesign plans of GEMS’ community center will be complete in August, with construction starting shortly after.
