Sandy Hook Fundraiser in Arlington a huge success!Published: 1/14/2013
Cocktails for a Cause in Clarendon
When the tragic shootings happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT, I was instantly affected. As a Virginia Tech alum, who was a student during our own tragedy, I know how hard it is for a community to overcome such a horrendous event. It was the outpour of support from people around the world which helped us cope and heal. I knew instantly I wanted to help Sandy Hook in some way, any way possible.
Teaming up with Project DC Events, we were able to put on a great event! Over 100 people came to support The Sandy Hook Fundraiser at SoBe in Clarendon on Wednesday, January 9th for a fundraiser happy hour to support the Sandy Hook School Support Fund. A $10 donation gave supporters a wristband for delicious food and drink specials. DJ Antonio Ernesto kept the party going all night long with great music and atmosphere. People danced, mingled, and left feeling good about the night and their contribution!
We raised nearly $1,300 in just a few hours and were featured on ABC 7 news! Project DC Events proved that while they do a great job of putting together awesome events and bar crawls, they also have a knack for bringing people together for a great cause! Thanks to everyone who came out and donated!
