Leading Change Benefit

New Jersey SEEDS' warmest thanks go to the more than 400 guests who joined us on April 8 at The Park Savoy for the 3rd Annual Leading Change Benefit. With the generous support of our friends, this year's Benefit is SEEDS' most successful fundraiser to date! Check out all of SEEDS' photos from the event!

Our guests enjoyed a delicious strolling dinner, festive time with friends, and an opportunity to meet SEEDS' remarkable young alumni. Congratulations to our Leading Change honorees - ADP, whose award was accepted by Carlos Rodriguez, and Alan and Jennifer Fournier. They were recognized for their continued commitment for enhancing the educational opportunities of students in New Jersey.

Special thanks to the evening's Dinner Chairs and Benefit Committee for making the evening a tremendous success.
