Footprint Of Life Gala To Benefit African Community & Conservation Foundation & Tusk

Amy Green and her husband, Gary, are hosting the inaugural Footprint of Life Gala at their residence in Bridgehampton on August 24. The family-run The Green Vision Foundation has curated a night to bring together like-minded organizations.

The humanitarians are producing a jungle-themed “50 Shades of Green” soiree to benefit the charity partners’ work to preserve and protect the natural world, promote community upliftment, and support conservation programs across Africa. This inaugural day will also pave the way for more events to come that will center around the New York region and other communities throughout America.

The night will include cocktails, curated food stations, a live auction, as well as a special guest performance by Jan Blomqvist. Additionally, work by photographer David Yarrow will be prominently displayed. The artist has been documenting the natural world from new perspectives.

Education on key conservation efforts which protect wildlife and enhance livelihoods across the world will be a key focus during the party as well as recognition on the critical need for action to combat the illegal wildlife trade, anti-poaching efforts to protect endangered species, and preserve the planet’s biodiversity and dwindling natural resources.

“Sustainability, conservation, education, and love of animals have always been close to my heart,” stated Amy. “I have been promoting these causes throughout my life and am honored to take this a step further by creating The Footprint of Life Gala. This has been a dream of mine for a long time and I know together we can spread a word of love, kindness, and commitment to create significant change.”

The philanthropic causes that will benefit include an array of well-recognized global organizations. Tusk for more than three decades has produced innovative conservation action in Africa. Under the Royal Patronage of HRH Prince William, The Prince of Wales, the charity has raised over $130 million for conservation and community livelihoods programs. The African Community & Conservation Foundation provides a gateway platform to connect citizens of the world with a strategic and sustainable community and conservation programs underway in Africa.

“As a mother, I understand the importance of this for the next generation,” reflected Amy. “When I look at the climate crisis, worsening statistics, and reports of irreversible damage, I can’t help but think of my daughter and the world I’m leaving behind for her. We cannot continue to ignore the crisis. While others talk about change, the ACCF spearheads conservation and anti-poaching projects as well as community outreach programs that make a difference in the African and global landscape. Conservation is a key component of protecting ourselves, our planet, and our future. The ACCF’s values and missions ensure we pay attention to urgent issues, invest in the African ecosystem, and promote practices that will reward us for years to come.”
