2013 SUMMER FUNDRAISER


This has been a big year for the SEED Project. From the success of our students and alumni, to the launch of a co-ed after-school program and the unveiling of a new logo - we’ve had a lot to celebrate. And we wanted our long-time supporters to do the same. So we invited 350 guests to a night dedicated to the celebration of culture, progress and hospitality. And celebrate, they did...
