SESEF would like to thank everyone who attended and supported the SES Costa Rica Community Table event.
Attendees were incredibly generous when bidding on silent auction items, bidding on desserts, and separate donations. In addition, the University of Minnesota provided generous donations to help continue the great work they helped start in Costa Rica.
All told, the total raise for the event was $5520.00! This is a great start on the total needed to accomplish the goal--to bring the Costa Rican students to Minnesota.
SES and SESEF will be planning additional fun events to continue the work, so stay tuned.
Jessica Prigge of the School of Environmental Studies was among the top students in the country selected to attend the World Food Prize Global Youth Institute Oct. 17-19, 2013, in Des Moines, Iowa, during the Borlaug Dialogue International Symposium, which drew 1,500 people from more than 65 countries to discuss the world’s hunger and food security issues.
