The Berrette Family Foundation Official Launch/Keystone Dinner
The Berrette Family Foundation is officially announcing its first cohort of students this winter with a fundraiser/launch event at Busboys and Poets on 14th and V. The inaugural theme, The Beginning of a Community Staple, captures the objectives of the organization and the venue, showcasing their desire to inspire and transform the communities in which we live.
