Bolsa Mercado Dinner Benefits Seeds Of Africa

by Jerry Stewart

In 2005, when Atti Worku was named Miss Ethiopia, she took the public platform as an opportunity to found Seeds of Africa. She had moved to Dallas and signed with The Campbell Agency and her modeling career was in bloom.

At a young age, Atti noticed the disturbing difference between her private school experience and the other children unable to afford that privilege. In her hometown of Adama, Ethiopia she witnessed a system not working and the vicious cycle of poverty lead her to want to help. Thus, Seeds of Africa, a non-profit committed to education and aid to children in Adama, was born while she was living in Dallas.      

Royce Ring, board member of Seeds of Africa, owner of Plan B Group (Dallas-based architecture and design firm) as well as co-owner of Bolsa and Bolsa Mercado, along with Atti Worku are hosting a 4-course dinner (wine inclusive) at Bolsa Mercado to continue fundraising efforts and create more awareness. Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased on Prekindle. Mark your calendars for May 17, 2012 at 7pm.
