An army of local and national celebrity Chef's will partner to create a unique and purposeful menu, featuring locally grown produce from our smart farming partners, and from our community student-run gardens! Urban Seed Foundation's 8 GALA is our annual fundraising event to celebrate growth, community contribution and our partnerships in Las Vegas. We are committed to expanding the USF program offerings, and to the continued development of additional community gardens.
In the past year we have created food access points, nutrition education, cooking demonstrations, healthy community events, 5K2Farm Races and, most importantly, the empowerment of thousands of at-risk people in need. Our vision is to educate as many people as possible on how food is grown and why it is important to make healthy food-secure decisions. Our food access points and food distribution program have been consistently delivering hundreds of pounds of healthy fresh locally grown produce to thousands of people every month for the past year. There are still so many more who we can reach, through your partnerships, your support, your generosity, your donations and your continued participation.
Our reach touches school children, K-12, homeless youth, rehabilitating veterans, and other community members facing food insecurity. We advocate for legislation and passionately lecture throughout the state to share information, educate and engage, causing real community action. The joy we experience when working in the community is priceless. Being of service to the people of Las Vegas, those who are often overlooked and in-need, are at the heart of our mission.
Please join us in celebration of our collective accomplishments, and in our critical mission to raise funds so that we may continue and expand this vital work. Urban Seed Foundation is currently a 100% volunteer run organization. Your donations, support and engagement are what makes our work possible.
Tickets are $275 per person or $2500 for a table of 10. Sponsorships are available, and encouraged!
100% of the proceeds benefit Urban Seed Foundation programs and garden builds. USF is a 100% volunteer led organization.
Thank you to our event sponsors and our annual sponsors who make it all possible!
