With Friends Like These

Updated: Jul 30, 2019

We are lucky to have some incredible "friends of GrantEd," that early on recognized the importance of our mission and committed to helping us spread the word. Among them, Larry Braithwaite (SVP, ASB Real Estate Investments), Hale Kpetigo (Software Architect, Leidos), and Rick Rome (Vice Chairman, Savills N.A.), who co-hosted a fabulous friend-raiser on June 20th at Mr. Braithwaite’s home in LeDroit Park.

The food, music, and specialty cocktails were all amazing, but nothing beat making new friends that understood the importance of relieving teachers of the financial burdens they endure to do their jobs. Thanks to our hosts and their guests, more than $5,000 was raised for teacher grants, which with an average grant amount of $360, could mean more than a dozen grants!

We look forward to more opportunities as special as this one.
