PRIVATE VIEWING OF SEWING HOPE AND Q&A WITH SISTER ROSEMARY
Join us for a private showing of the film, Sewing Hope, followed by a Q&A with Sister Rosemary.
For 25 years Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) terrorized Northern Uganda. They abducted children and forced them to commit atrocities against their own families and communities. Girls as young as thirteen were degraded to sex slaves for Kony’s officers.
Armed with only a sewing machine, Sister Rosemary openly defied Joseph Kony and the rebel soldiers and commanders of the Lord’s Resistance Army in their 20-year reign of terror. Now, the war is over, but the decades of brutal conflict have deeply scarred the people of Uganda. Child soldiers return to the very communities they committed violent crimes against, and the girls carry with them a constant reminder of their abuse: their captors’ children. These girls and their children are often ostracized by their communities, and most lack the skills they need to provide for their families.Since 2002, Sister Rosemary has enrolled in school more than 2,000 girls who had been previously abducted by the LRA or abandoned by their families.
CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT
Pipeline Worldwide will be hosting its 2014 Charity Golf Tournament at the award-winning We-Ko-Pa Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona. Proceeds and donations from this event will go directly to Pipeline Worldwide’s local and international partner projects that are impacting individuals and communities through sustainable change in Arizona, Uganda, Rwanda and India. Many nonprofits host golf tournaments as a traditional means of raising support, but not many offer overseas travel opportunities. Pipeline Worldwide offers a unique approach to creating connections and impacting lives.
SEASON OF IMPACT - HOLIDAY CONCERT
Season of Impact is a community initiative focusing on others during this holiday season. This campaign not only impacts our own community in Phoenix, Arizona, but also reaches families far beyond in Africa and India. The impact begins on Thanksgiving Day at Phoenix Children’s Hospital as hundreds of inpatients and their families will be served Thanksgiving dinner. It’s hard to imagine being a child in the hospital over the holidays but through this campaign, Pipeline Worldwide is bringing joy during a challenging situation. We are also inviting the community to celebrate the season at a Christmas Concert on Sunday, December 15, 2013 at 6:30pm featuring the dynamic Watoto Children’s Choir from Uganda, Africa along with local music artists Andy Frank and Justin Unger. 100% of the contributions raised at this free “family friendly” concert will go directly to Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Watoto Child Care, and Good News India.
WATER 4 KIDS BASEBALL CLASSIC
Pipeline Worldwide teamed up with Sam Nollette, now a teenager at Cactus Shadows High School, to host an annual baseball tournament in Phoenix, Arizona.

Borderline, Getting WELL Connected focuses on sustainability, a very real topic among the business, real estate, construction and design community. This annual event brings awareness as well as an opportunity to get involved and support sustainable projects around the world.
