Clean water is something we tend to take for granted in the U.S., but not all countries around the world have that luxury. With businesses like Georgica Restaurant & Bar and organizations like the VOSS Foundation, we are able to give a small piece of the luxurious lives we lead to those in underdeveloped countries.


Georgica, located in East Hampton, was excited to host its second annual clean water benefit on July 3. By way of a cocktail party, dinner and after-party, the restaurant raised funds to benefit the VOSS Foundation. The after-party featured a live performance by American Young.


The entire celebration was hosted by Victoria’s Secret model Vita Sidorkina and Blue Bloods actress Sami Gayle.Event committee members were as follows:  Neal Batra, Kirsten Hansen, Leah Herman, Rosie Lee, Nana Meriwether, Yvonne Najor, Kim Roach, Luke Siwulla and Stephen Sokoler.


With the first ever celebration in 2013, Georgica started this tradition with a bang. Last year’s event raised enough money to provide Rivercess, Liberia with a clean water well. The implementation and dedication of this well was chronicled globally by VOSS Water in its 31 Days to Make a Difference campaign.


The VOSS Foundation is dedicated to providing access to clean water, sanitation and hygiene as a means to enable community-driven development in Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as to advocate of the ongoing need in the region. It is an independent 501(c)(3) public charity founded in 2008. It has funded 59 clean water access points and 159 sanitation facilities in Kenya, Mali, Ethiopia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia and Swaziland.
