THANK YOU!

ALL proceeds from this event go to Massachusetts Avenue Project. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we’ve had to limit our youth programming and reconsider how to host our fundraisers. We’ve had to cancel events, tours, farmhouse kitchen and space rentals. Now, we have a funding gap that needs to be filled. By purchasing a ticket for our virtual Raising the Roots (from home) fundraiser you are directly making an impact and helping us employ more young people this school year.
