Seeds of Peace, the 20-year-old organization which seeks to foster peace through youth training programs, announced its 8th annual Peace Market fundraising event yesterday, via a release.
Chromeo's Dave 1 and Questlove will be DJ'ing the event, to be held at New York's Metropolitan Pavilion Ballroom on Wednesday, March 13. It will also feature a raffle and a silent auction.
Seeds of Peace funds youth -- "seeds" -- from beleagured nations and regions, bringing them to its Peace International retreat in Maine for leadership training, supporting them afterwards with a year of "programming," meant to encourage a truly grassroots embrace of a global peace culture.
Peace Market events have raised over $3 million dollars in total, providing a major source of funding for the Seeds of Peace initiative. You can purchase tickets to the event at the Peace Market website.
