On December 16, 2013, New Yorkers attended the 8th Annual Charity Ball to benefit Charity Water.
It was an eclectic bunch (including Princess Beatrice of York, David Lauren and Tony Hawk) that turned up to lug 40 lbs. jerry canisters of water across a 64ft. Waterwalk runway at Duggal Greenhouse in Brooklyn’s Navy Yard.
For each trek guests made, the Caterpillar Foundation donated $1,000 to fund water projects for Malawi. In the end, over $4 million was raised for 60,000 people in Malawi.
