ROSEMONT, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On Oct. 13, Party with a Purpose wrapped up its seventh annual event at
The Meadows Club in Rolling Meadows, IL. A record-breaking number of
guests joined together to raise nearly $200,000 to support nutrition,
health, educational and job skills training for a community of 1,200
vulnerable children in Nicaragua.
Each year, one hundred percent of the proceeds from the party and the
auctions support ORPHANetwork, a non-profit organization whose focus is
to break cycles of poverty through the local Nicaraguan church.
Over the course of seven years, this Chicago area party has raised
nearly $1.2 million to provide approximately 2.3 million meals, medical
and dental care, deworming treatments, hygiene training and support for
new moms that have collectively reduced malnourishment rates by 50
percent in the former refugee community of Nueva Vida. A video of a
Nicaraguan family who has been directly impacted by the parties
captivated this year’s crowd as the mother explained how her son is now
working and breaking the cycle of poverty thanks to the help of the
holistic care provided in the community.
Party with a Purpose was started in 2011 by John Pitzaferro, CEO and
Founder of TransNational Payments, after he traveled to Nicaragua.
Seeing the tangible impact their donations are making in the lives of
the children and families in Nicaragua, John, his wife Stacey, the
employees of TransNational Payments and countless volunteers continue
give their time, talent and energy to make each annual party better than
ORPHANetwork currently partners with more than 200 Local Church
Initiatives in Nicaragua to break cycles of poverty through holistic
care focused on health, education and job skills training for nearly
20,000 vulnerable children. Additionally, ORPHANetwork cares for 370
orphaned and abandoned children through partnerships with six child
protection centers (orphanage homes) across Nicaragua.
