R.E.M.’s Michael Stipe will join Helena Christensen, Katie Ford, Natane Boudreau, Andre Balazs and Steven Klein as a host of a special event to benefit Free The Slaves on Wednesday, October 20, in NYC.

The event will feature cocktails and entertainment, and will include a special live auction to raise funds for Free The Slaves, an organization that works with a wide variety of people, be it Restavek children in Haiti, war children in Uganda, women and children forced into prostitution in Nepal or entire villages in debt bondage in India. Free The Slaves rescues, rehabilitates and educates victims, and also does sub­stantial advocacy on their behalf. Through on-the-ground partnerships in Haiti, Brazil, Ghana, Uganda, Congo, India and Nepal, Free The Slaves focuses on systemic changes to ensure that the communities they work with will never be vulnerable to slavery again.

The event takes place at the Top Of The Standard, 442 West 13th Street, at 7pm. Find out more here.
