On November 20th, 2017 The Rescue Project, a subsidiary non-profit branch of the organization HAVEN HANDS Inc launched a worldwide aid campaign named Vision 2020 at a monumental Gala in New York City at the Prince George Ballroom that also served as a birthday celebration for fashion guru and business magnate Resk ‘Que, who makes it an annual tradition to highlight a good cause at his birthday events. This was a massive undertaking, and could not have been accomplished without the partnership of Monsieur Tounton, a wholesale wine business that calls New York its home. Monsieur Tounton saw the promise the Vision 2020 Campaign has for the future, and did their part to make sure Vision 2020 was a success from the ground up.
The Rescue Project combats unclean water, improper sanitation, and inadequate eyecare in areas in need, especially developing areas such as Sub-Saharan Africa. With the Vision 2020 Campaign, The Rescue Project is taking the steps to raise $20 million by the year 2020 with all proceeds going to help those in need all over the world. Solutions include installing wells and irrigation systems, building proper latrines and supplying medical aid and pop-up eye treatment centers.
As part of the launch of Vision 2020, the gala and masquerade ball was packed to the brim with dignitaries, politicians, celebrities, business leaders, doctors and all other forms of world changers, and Monsieur was the perfect brand to have onboard as a sponsor. Monsieur Tounton is a global company specializing in importing products, so they have first-hand knowledge of global issues.
Monsiuer Tounton provided the selections of wine at the event, which the guests raved for. It was a match made in heaven, and The Rescue Project could not have had the event as successful without their partnership.
