Davina Dobie, an artist who grew up in Kenya, will present a screening of the National Geographic film “Battle for the Elephants” at Guild Hall on Saturday, with cocktails at 6:30 p.m. and the screening at 7. The film examines the plight of the African elephant and its decimation from an estimated 10 million in 1900 to under a half million today.
John Heminway, the writer, producer, and director, will be at the screening, as will Donna Karan. Ticket sales will benefit several African wildlife conservation efforts and will be tax deductible through an American charity, Empowers Africa. Regular admission is $150, with V.I.P. seating $300.
