The Seattle-based Seattle Education Access held its annual College Dreams Luncheon at the Westin Hotel in downtown Seattle on Sept. 10. The event was attended by more than 200 people, including the students served by the nonprofit organization, alumni, volunteers, community leaders and activists, the Board of Directors, Student Advisory Board Leaders, and noted guests such as Senator Ed Murray, and King County Assistant Deputy Executive Rhonda Berry. The event helped raise $36,000 which will help provide gap scholarships to low-income students.
Since its inception ten years ago, Seattle Education Access has helped over 700 students, who have faced significant adversity and poverty, achieve their dreams of a higher education. (end)
