Hothouse is The Sprout Fund’s annual benefit and showcase event. The event serves as a stage to present a sampling of some of the innovative projects and emerging leaders of successful community initiatives supported by Sprout over the past year. Held annually at unique development sites, the event celebrates the organization’s accomplishments and features live music and performances, food and drink by Pittsburgh favorites, a silent auction, and a VIP reception.
As The Sprout Fund’s “live annual report” to the community, the event creates an incredible opportunity for the wide cross-section of Pittsburgh’s business and social circles that come together each year in support of Sprout’s mission to meet and mingle.
Support for the event has been strong every year; last year 36 financial sponsors, 4 media sponsors, 24 in-kind supporters, 32 food & drink sponsors, and 57 silent auction donors joined hundreds of friends of the organization to raise more than $130,000 for The Sprout Fund.
