Tonight, Limbo will be ritzing it up at a truly fantastic fundraiser here in the city (one I wrote about last month that got delayed thanks to Snowmageddon)! You know you want to come out for the cause, CCC, and hobnob with City Councilmembers, philanthropists, pols, and me!!
Held at the Twelve Restaurant & Lounge (which just looks truly delicious), the event goes for two hours and for a donation of $25 (to the Ward 7 non-profit College & Career Connections group*) I know I’m excited to put on a cute suit (naturally!) and meet the likes of Chair Vincent Gray and Council members Kwame Brown and Michael Brown (who are both participating in the silent auction!). Face it, you know you want to come out, especially considering the awesome cause it supports. Details on the event, and CCC (provided by a friend of mine who sent me the media advisory, so it’s ‘official’ for once!), all follow. And feel free to spread the word!
DATE: Thursday, March 4, 2010
TIME: 6:30 – 8:30 pm. Program to begin at 7:15.
PLACE: Twelve Restaurant & Lounge – 1123 H Street, NE
*College and Career Connections is a local nonprofit serving Washington, DC’s Wards 7 and 8. Since 2007, CCC has engaged over 1,000 8th and 9th grade students in interactive workshops, and college and workplace visits that connect their current interests and education with college and career options. In a community where only one in twenty students will graduate college, CCC both inspires students to envision college in their future, and informs them of the concrete steps they need to take now to achieve that future.
