NEW YORK, Dec. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Diamond Empowerment Fund (D.E.F.), Hearst Magazines, and A Diamond is Forever banded together to host the exclusive "Empowerment for Africa" dinner held at Hearst Tower in Manhattan Monday evening in recognition of World AIDS Day. D.E.F. co-founder Russell Simmons and special guests including Tamsin Smith, President of the (RED) campaign were in attendance to generate buzz for D.E.F.'s mission centered on supporting education initiatives that develop and empower economically disadvantaged African communities in nations where diamonds are a natural resource. Education is critical in curbing the spread of HIV/AIDS, and thus World AIDS Day provided an apt stage to publicize D.E.F.'s objective.
