Doug Stoup and Monica Westin hosted a fundraising party at the penthouse apartment of Brian Mehling on September 22, 2009. Dr. Mehling was extremely generous to donate the space to support the efforts of World of Hope International and the Ice Axe Foundation. It was a wonderful fall evening overlooking the beautiful Manhattan sky line. Attendees were United Nations ambassadors, artists, musicians, philanthropists and friends of both Doug and Monica. World of Hope and Ice Axe hosted the event to raise the much needed funds for their education programs. Ice Axe Foundation is still accepting pledges and donations and all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
