Chefs and Seeds — a charity event benefiting Seeds of Africa’s Dream School Capital Campaign — is scheduled for October 22nd and will be held at 3015 at Trinity Groves from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. This is the first gala event in a series going from Dallas to New York, Chicago, Paris, London, and Adama. The Dallas event will bring together some of the most talented and well-known chefs in the Dallas area for a premier tasting event.
Seeds of Africa CEO and founder Atti Worku, says, “We are excited to welcome the Dallas community for an evening of memorable food, drinks and music by musicians from the area. Dallas is our launch city, so we are incredibly proud and grateful to the chef and restaurant community that have agreed to volunteer their time and services for such an important cause. I personally have strong ties to Dallas; it’s the city I first came to when I moved to the United States, and where Seeds of Africa was founded, which makes this launch event extra special.”
The Dream School Campaign is Seeds of Africa’s most exciting and ambitious project yet: creating a Dream School that will house Seeds of Africa’s cutting edge education and community development programs. Upon completion, the Dream School will serve 600 students between Pre-Kindergarten and 12th grade with free education, school supplies, meals and uniforms. In addition, its facilities will provide community development and health services to the students’ families and the greater Adama community. The goal is to create an Ethiopian academy that meets the highest international standards, which will prepare its students to succeed in high school, college, and beyond.
