IN KIND SUPPORT
Los Angeles Education Partnership's Design Challenge is a one-of-a-kind evening you won't want to miss.
Luminaires! Refreshments! Provocative conversation! Creativity!
During this cocktail reception and fundraiser at REDCAT, teams of luminaries will build three-dimensional answers to an education-related question. The competition between luminaries will require speed, ingenuity – and audience participation.
Your support helps LAEP fund programs and opportunities aimed at increasing the number of Los Angeles students who are college- and career-ready.
Be part of the challenge!
