Christopher DeVaughn ’08 co-organized a benefit to raise money for relief in earthquake-stricken Haiti, which ended up bringing in $15,000.

“Over 100 made their way to Georgetown’s City Tavern Club to attend the launch of Project H on Saturday, a fundraiser to benefit Oxfam America’s Haiti Earthquake Relief Effort. Guests enjoyed live music, cocktails, and a great silent auction.

“Here’s W Hotels’ Caroline Gould, PM Hospitality’s Katie Twyman, Teach For America’s Grace Yi, and Still Riding Pizza’s Natalie Douglas.

“The 23-year-old founders, Brookings’ Govinda Avasarala and RLJ Development’s Chris DeVaughn, want to encourage recent grads to organize similar events to raise funds for social entrepreneurship in the developing world. Thanks to Robert Stevens for the photos.”

Cornell alumni attended to support the cause.
