GravelRoad Kids + Keep a Child Alive's Black Ball Event - NYC

As we enter 2008, GRK gives thanks to our customers, the industry and designers that helped us launch a fantastic intro to market of GRK and bring light to an organization that means so much to us.

This winter we were honored to join Keep a Child Alive at this year's Black Ball event in NYC honoring Bono, Dr. Pasquine Ogunsanya and Nick Reding. Hosted by Iman and Alicia Keys, it was a truly inspiring event with amazing performances, heartbreaking and uplifting stories of real children and miracle workers that are overcoming dire elements with hope and compassion and the 'drugs' provided through Keep a Child Alive's small but driven network led by Lee Blake. It is our privilege to support this organization in time and dollars and thank you for your purchases which help us to help this amazing team.

I think of it as the little engine that could. Beyond the rock stars, it comes down to really hard work and guts to move corporations and individuals to learn more, do more and support the cause. Can you help?
