On Thursday, May 17th, a stylish crowd converged at Bolsa Mercado to toast Seeds of Africa. Intimately arranged at communal tables within the Oak Cliff neighborhood restaurant, many of our city’s most fashionable folks enjoyed the culinary creations of chefs Jeff Harris and Matt Balke to raise funds for this heartfelt cause.
Founded by Dallas model Atti Worku (pictured above, center), Seeds of Africa provides education and aid to children in her hometown of Adama, Ethiopia. Coordinated in partnership with Royce Ring, co-owner of Bolsa and Bolsa Mercado, as well as a board member of the non-profit, every dollar from every ticket purchased for the dinner went to support Seeds of Africa’s programming.
At the conclusion of the evening, conversation continued well after sundown, and plates of chocolate cake topped with Ethiopian coffee ice cream were savored to the last bite. Guests enjoyed flipping through scrapbook-style pamphlets, featuring snapshots of the organization’s young “seeds” at school in Africa.
A big congratulations to Worku and her team for their efforts, from all of us at DFW Style Daily. Click here to learn more about Seeds of Africa.
