IHYC's rooftop garden project, which will provide employment and valuable job-training to homeless and at-risk young adults in Des Moines; as well as provide healthy produce to the IHYC Meal Program. Proceeds will also benefit Italy's earthquake relief efforts. In the wake of these recent powerful earthquakes, thousands of Italians have become homeless and are living in shelters.
IHYC will be unveiling the official brand of the rooftop garden project (designed by Meyocks).
Guests will have the chance to bid on great prize packages in Silent Auction (winners will be announced before dessert).
This is a non-alcoholic event.
