The Annual SEI Here & Now Party

Gala benefits youth at the Self Enhancement Inc.

By Kasey Cordell May 6, 2010


GLITZ, GLAMOUR, AND PLENTY OF GAMS were on display at Self Enhancement Inc’s annual Here+Now party on April 17. The annual fundraising event aims to introduce young, community-oriented professionals—Portland’s next generation of philanthropists—to SEI. As one of the nation’s premier youth development organizations, SEI provides after-school support that the public education system just can’t afford. This need intensifies during the summer, when SEI runs six-week summer programs that engage hundreds of students in classes, music, athletics, performing arts, and internships. This year Here+Now raised $167,000 in support of those programs. Now that’s something we can (and did) drink to.
