Channel your inner eighteen-year-old this Saturday night at the fourteenth annual Valentine's Day Prom hosted by the Secret Agents of Change. The groups mission is "to host fun events that raise awareness and introduce young people to philanthropy," and the prom definitely qualifies. From its humble start in a freshman dorm at the University of Dayton, it's moved from location to location, landing in Denver in 2010. But no matter where the prom is held, it chooses a non-profit to benefit from the proceeds of the event. See also: Best Day to Get Hitched at City Hall 2012 -- Valentine's Day
This year the beneficiary is Sprout City Farms, whose goal is to bring good food to urban neighborhoods. "We're using money for the event to support Mountair Park Community Farm," says Alison Hatch of Sprout City Farms. "It will be in Lakewood and breaking ground in March."
This is Sprout City Farms' second farm, and the group partnered with the City of Lakewood on the project.
