OFFICIAL LAUNCH! :: The World C.L.A.S.S.
Friday, July 8, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
The World C.L.A.S.S.
“Inspiring Strong Minds To Mobilize For The Greater Good”
A new class of globally-minded professionals celebrating:
Culture . Leadership . the Arts . Selflessness . Sustainability .
This is an international, multi-city effort with a franchise-like model to be
replicated in cities across the globe (ie: World CLASS New York, World CLASS
London, World CLASS Hong Kong, etc.). "Thinking Globally"
EVENTS :: Chapters will hold monthly mixers gathering like-minded and like-hearted professionals in culturally-rich venues. We take a qualitative, solution-based approach to networking akin to a think tank atmosphere. We are not selling, we are solving!
(CHARITY) :: Each chapter city will be teamed with a local non-profit
partner(s). Admission is complimentary to monthly mixers. However, at least one
in-kind donation item per attendee is required to ensure entry (ie: canned
foods, books, clothing). All items are then donated to regional non-profits on
behalf of The World CLASS. "Acting Locally"
LEADERS :: This is a top-down approach to widespread social innovation. The World CLASS is committed to the expansion and maturity of socially-conscious business leaders, worldwide. We stand by a hybrid business model: for-profit companies with non-profit objectives :: making money while making a difference!
NON-MONETARY POLICY :: In an attempt to reduce corruption, greed and today’s hyper-obsession with money, sponsorship dollars will be refused, fees will not be charged, financial donations will not be accepted. This is symbolic, intended to spotlight conscious capitalism, heighten empathy, recalibrate ethical standards and promote creative thinking. No money will be made, no money will be paid.
PRESTIGE :: An Advisory Board of award winners and top-tier executives is being assembled to help shape strategic objectives and further elevate the group. (GRAMMY:EMMY:OSCAR:TONY:PULITZER)
Our CAUSE :: In-kind donations from the New York Chapter of The World CLASS will benefit City Harvest: serving New York City for more than 25 years as the world's first food rescue organization.
City Harvest exists to end hunger in communities throughout New York City. They do this through food rescue and distribution, education, and other practical, innovative solutions. City Harvest feeds 300,000 people a week in NYC. They do not have food banks. They rescue and feed the same day!
