2018 Holiday Fundraiser at The Ritz Carlton Residences
Our annual holiday fundraiser, Planting Seeds Of Hope, was held on December 4th, 2018, at the stunning Ritz Carlton Residences in Chicago. The evening was an intimate and festive gathering dedicated to celebrating and supporting the kids and our programming. This year’s reception was made possible through the generous sponsorship of Mariani Landscape and the Conant Family Foundation.
Mariani Landscape brought their pop-up Holiday Shoppe to the city for the evening where beautifully hand-crafted wreaths, centerpieces and other holiday décor items decorated the space and were available for purchase.100% of all profits from all holiday shoppe sales went directly to our Keeping Grounded Greenhouse Program, a summer greenhouse work-study program and year-round workshop series that offers job opportunities and exposure activities to our kids.
