This past Monday was the Seeds of Africa Charity Date Auction event at the Manhattan Penthouse is Union Square. Guests enjoyed an open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres, watched the red carpet, and networked while waiting for the events planned for the evening to begin. Money from from ticket sales, a raffle, the art auction, and the date auction is being used in support of education in Zimbabwe and to build a school.
