/ -- Sam Childers, the Machine Gun Preacher, invites the public to join him for The Angels of East Africa Gala, Friday Nov. 4th at 7:00 PM, City Winery, 155 Varick St., New York, NY 10013. Please make plans to join the founder of The Angels of East Africa, Sam Childers, The Machine Gun Preacher, actor Michael Shannon and a host of others to help make a difference in the lives of orphaned children.
On Friday, November 4, 2016, Starbaby Enterprises will present the first annual Angels of East Africa Gala at City Winery in New York City. The Angels of East Africa Gala will benefit the projects for the Children's Villages in South Sudan and Ethiopia which feeds and schools more than 350 orphans. As a special part of the gala, there will be an auction of original artwork created by orphans from the Children's Village.
Sam Childers' life was the subject to a Hollywood movie, The Machine Gun Preacher starring heartthrob Gerard Butler as Sam Childers, based on his bestselling book "Another Man's War." It illustrates the real life challenges that Sam experienced in Africa, the US and to a certain extent even today.
Sam Childers overcame a life of drugs and violence to embrace his faith in God and wage a 13-year war to free enslaved children in what are some of the most dangerous areas of South Sudan, Africa. His organization, Angels of East Africa maintains orphanages in South Sudan, Ethiopia and Northern Uganda. Late last year, a bloody coup attempt began that turned into tribal war in South Sudan...that conflict continues today. Sam and his team are actively involved in rescuing children in that area right now.
