SEEDS OF PEACE ANNUAL BENEFIT DINNER
05/27/2009 - By GRAND BALLROOM, THE PLAZA HOTEL, CENTRAL PARK SOUTH, NEW YORK CITY

SEEDS OF PEACE ANNUAL BENEFIT DINNER

NEW JERSEY GOVERNOR JON S. CORZINE, GLOBAL LEADERS AND PHILANTHROPISTS COME TOGETHER TO SUPPORT ‘SEEDS OF PEACE’

Seeds of Peace (www.seedsofpeace.org), a nonprofit aimed at promoting peace in the Middle East and South Asia through youth leadership programs, held its annual benefit dinner on May 27th in the Grand Ballroom of the Plaza Hotel. Former U.S. President and philanthropist William J. Clinton served as Honorary Chair. New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine* and 2009 Corporate Peacemaker ExxonMobil was honored for their role in youth empowerment and peace building, particularly in the area of women’s empowerment.

Continued hostility in India, Afghanistan and Pakistan as well as the recent crisis in Gaza and southern Israel creates an urgent need for dialogue among young people and between supposed “enemies.” Seeds of Peace operates in the Middle East (Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Ramallah, Gaza, Cairo, Amman) and South Asia (Kabul, Mumbai, Lahore) to bring young people together from opposite sides of conflict for face-to-face coexistence programs.
