Carbon NYC will host 500 guests at its second annual Charity Soirée on May 7th at Center 548 (548 West 22nd Street, NYC), supported by sponsor Urban Rebounding. The event will be an immersion into urban art, music, and dance in support of a New York based non-profit organization, CampInteractive. The fundraiser will serve a dual purpose; to raise funds for CampInteractive and to celebrate the charity’s 10 year anniversary. In 2010, Carbon supported charity: water through their Charity Soirée and has since made a commitment to spearhead at least one major philanthropic initiative annually. This event is open to the public and individuals can purchase tickets for $200 or VIP sections for $5,000 each at http://www.carboncharitygala.charityhappenings.org.

CampInteractive is a New York based, non-profit organization that empowers inner-city youth through the inspiration of the outdoors and the creative power of technology. They believe that when urban teenagers step back into nature and forward into technology they gain invaluable skills, heighten their academic standing, and begin to realize more of life’s possibilities. The goals of the organization are to provide NYC’s inner-city youth with technology training, giving participants a creative outlet. The organization provides environmental education to connect city kids to the natural world and the environmental issues facing their generation, as well as a safe space to learn, grow, and build personal goals for the future. In September of 2006, a year-round program began with the opening of the Center as a base. CI now actively engages youth throughout the year with academic tutoring, monthly outdoor trips, and technology workshops.
