Need in Deed’s annual Soirée celebrates our unique partnership with Philadelphia’s remarkable public school classrooms. Join us in honoring the educators who are making a huge impact on the way students in Philadelphia learn.

Enjoy an evening of delectable food and wine, music and games, and get to know the Need in Deed community!

This year we honor Michael O’Bryan as our Ambassador of Education.  Widely recognized as an expert practitioner and thought-leader in the fields of community development, organizational culture, and trauma-informed practice, Michael is also a long-time Need in Deed community partner.  We also honor Rebecca Julien, Principal at Kirkbride School and community partners Dr. Sara Jane Ward and Dr. Lynn Kirby.
