THE AFRICAN DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION HONORS

EXCEPTIONAL GROUP AT 6th ANNUAL DINNER

New York, NY - The African Development Foundation recently announced the honorees for its 6th Annual Dinner to be held at the New York Marriott Marquis on Thursday, September 22, 2011.

This year's honorees include former world champion boxer Azumah 'The Professor' Nelson, NY Knicks coach Herb Williams, renown cyclist and advocate for the disabled Emmanuel Yeboah, and HRH Princess Basmah Bint Saud Bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud.

"This is an outstanding group of people. We are very excited about our honorees and all they have done to further the cause of the ADF and its mission," said ADF Founder and President George Ntim.

The evening will include silent and live auctions featuring baseball and other memorabilia with proceeds going towards a 2-Field Baseball Complex, which the ADF began constructing in July 2010 on the campus of the University of Ghana, Legon.

The ADF is an international non-profit organization, created to garner goodwill and strengthen relationships between the United States and Africa through youth-oriented initiatives. Its outreach includes providing African youths with computer training, health-related resources, and recreational outlets.
