The Cafe WINS!!

Caption: The Urban Studio Cafe is nearly ready to go. We are within $20,000 of our fundraising goal!

On Thursday, April 23rd, The Urban Studio Cafe was named one of five winners at Washington University Skandalaris Center's Social Entrepreneurship and Innovation Competition (SEIC). The Incarnate Word Foundation awarded the Cafe $30,000 of seed capital, and the Youthbridge Foundation awarded Claire Wolff a $5,000 top student award for her work on the Cafe.
