Mosaic Foundation 12th Annual Benefit Dinner Chaired by First Lady of the Lebanese Embassy in the United States, Gala to Feature Cirque du Soeil Show

(EMBASSY ROW)...Access to clean drinking water is one of the most critical issues of our time. Each year almost two million children die from causes related to a lack of clean water resources, and millions more suffer every day. The 2009 Annual Benefit Dinner will highlight the programs of the Mosaic Foundation Water Initiative, and will help to tell its story through a unique and unforgettable cultural performance.

In 2009 all of the Foundations primary activities will be dedicated to the crucial goal of bringing clean water to those in need. Access to clean water is by far one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty, fight disease, and increase the quality of life for those in impoverished regions around the world. On April 28th the story of the world water crisis will come to Washington at the National Building Museum, during an evening celebration with a new, original performance by Cirque du Soleil.
