to announce grant awards at annual celebratory event

What:               A celebration featuring recent grantees of the Teen Grantmaking Council youth philanthropy initiative.

How:                Please contact Traci Poole (tpoole@cfgg.org) by Wednesday, March 9, if you would like to attend this teen-focused celebration. Media coverage is welcomed and appreciated.
