The Little Lights Benefit on October 13th at the Howard Theatre is made possible through the generosity of our corporate sponsors and their faith in our growing and advancing work with under-resourced communities living in DC’s public housing.
We are so very grateful for our two first-time Platinum Sponsors, SuprTEK, Inc. and Georgetown University and all of our other corporate partners who believe wholeheartedly in our cause.
