Young Designers Consortium helps host Knight Foundation winners reception

YDC at Knight

The Young Designers Consortium participated in the 2015 Winners Reception for the Knight Foundation. The event was tremendous and awe-inspiring. It was heartening to share in the award presentation to our Knight Champions, Carlos and Rosa de la Cruz.

This was a first time experience for most attending the New World Center. This is a list of firsts:

  1. Escorted limousine bus
  2. Backstage tour of NWC.
  3. Reserved front row seats
  4. Introduction to dozens of innovative community arts programs
  5. Seated in front of Gloria Estefan
  6. Stage appearance
  7. Adult rooftop reception

The students did not need the limousine to return to DASH since they all  were flying so high from this once in a lifetime experience.
