The Soirée is an annual gathering for Need in Deed teachers, community partners, and supporters to celebrate the incredible service-learning work done by our Teacher Network members in 3rd-8th grade classrooms across Philadelphia. We hope you’ll join us for this year’s gallery-inspired experience featuring documentary photographs by Rodney Atienza that capture the discovery and joy our participants experience over the course of a single school year.

We will also remember the legacy of our 2018 Ambassador for Education, Debbie Bambino. Debbie passed away in June 2018 and we are honored to recognize her impact on Need in Deed’s work since joining the Teacher Network in 2011 and her passionate contributions to public education in Philadelphia.

An informal wine tasting by Moore Brothers Wine Company will complement light fare and a dessert buffet.
