Paul McCartney live: Adopt-A-Minefield Gala, Los Angeles

Paul McCartney performed at the third annual Adopt-A-Minefield Gala at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles, California, USA, on 23 September 2003.

McCartney performed at the charity’s gala event each year from 2001 to 2005.

We invite you to join us on September 23, 2003 at the Hilton Beverly Hills Hotel for Adopt-A-Minefield’s 3rd annual gala benefit. This cause is truly unique as its outcome is measurable and globally important. Your leadership and participation will help save lives, remove a significant threat, protect the environment and put land back into productive use.

Knowing firsthand about the atrocities caused by landmines in Croatia, we cannot look the other way. We hope you won’t either. The global landmine crisis is one of the most pervasive problems facing the world today. In one-third of the world’s nations, landmines kill and maim unsuspecting men, women and 10,000 children per year.

We, who are fortunate enough to be living in the West, must join together to address the threat of these indiscriminate weapons of war. With your help, people can begin to put their lives back together, reclaiming their land and knowing that their children will no longer be at risk of losing their lives or limbs every 22 seconds.

The Adopt-A-Minefield Campaign is a public-private partnership between United Nations Association of the USA, the United Nations, Ted Turner’s Better World Fund and the U.S. State Department, which seeks national and international sponsors to adopt minefields and provide survivor assistance. Since its launch in 1999, the Campaign has engaged over 200,000 people in 35 countries to clear 3 million square meters of land in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Cambodia, Croatia, Mozambique and Vietnam.

We are personally committed to Adopt-A-Minefield and we hope you will join us by creating a legacy of clearing the Earth of landmines, providing survivor assistance and raising awareness about the landmine crisis. You will become a part of the solution. With our combined efforts, ‘we can work it out.’

We thank you in advance for your generosity and support, and we so look forward to seeing you on September 23, 2003.

Best regards,

Heather Mills McCartney, Paul McCartney
