That Time I Met Morgan Freeman

It’s been a busy month in the events division of my office! I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight one of our events that we put on for our client Grace Hightower & Coffees of Rwanda that I’m particularly proud of the team for. 

To mark the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, our client  wanted to host a cocktail party to honor the Rwandan First Lady and the progress the country has made in the past two decades. Our client’s company runs with the motto given by the President, “trade not aid” and for nearly two years Grace Hightower has been dedicated to helping the country’s economy directly by buying coffee directly from the Rwandan farmers. The event was a very intimate affair with invites going to close friends of the De Niros and A-tier press. 

Here are some photo highlights of the evening, along with my picture with Morgan Freeman! And yes, he’s just as cool in person as you would expect (for the 5 mins we talked to him anyways :-p)

It was such a beautiful evening and definitely not one I’ll forget anytime soon!
