African Thanksgiving event set for next week

Humanitarian Vivian Glyck, who has established medical clinics and schools in Uganda, is hosting an African Thanksgiving event to benefit her Just Like My Child Foundation at a private Rancho Santa Fe home next week.

The benefit will be held Nov. 19 at the world-renowned home of John and Maria Assaraf in Rancho Santa Fe. The event will feature remarks by author, speaker and global visionary Deepak Chopra, as well as African music, dance and fine dining for 250 guests.

The African Thanksgiving celebrates the Just Like My Child Foundation’s third year of saving lives and empowering women and children in central Uganda. Just Like My Child raises money through grants and donations for education, health care and microfinance projects that involve communities in creating permanent social change.

Glyck said she hopes the group’s work and the Thanksgiving event will help people know the joy of helping to save and enrich lives.
