The Shirlington Employment and Education Center (SEEC) is holding a fundraiser on Oct. 18 from 6-8 p.m. at the Barcroft Community House.
The Emily DiCicco Humanitarian Award will be presented to Andrew Schneider, executive director of Thrive, and Our Lady Queen of Peace Catholic Church for its efforts to help immigrants. Hors d'oeuvres and refreshments will be served and Latin music provided by DJ Milton Aguilar.
SEEC is a non-profit organization funded by Arlington County. It was established 18 years ago to connect immigrant day laborers with employers seeking temporary employment. The proceeds of the event will go to support the new SEEC Immigrant Women Empowerment Program which relies on donations for its funding.
RSVPs may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. A donation of $25 is suggested with sponsorships for the event of $100-$2,000.
