This story comes to us from Andrew Huff:

Councilmember Jack Evans will host residents from around Ward 2 on Wednesday, October 27 to celebrate his birthday and introduce his new family, including wife Michele Evans.

The event will take place in the Homer Building atrium (601 13th Street, NW) from 6:00pm-8:30pm. 

“I look forward to welcoming friends and colleagues from around the Ward and city to celebrate with me and my new family,” Evans said.  “If you are in the neighborhood, I hope you’ll stop by.”

Susan G. Komen for the Cure Gala

Over last weekend, the Susan G. Komen Foundation celebrated 30 years of research and education, including an A-list dinner for donors on Friday at the Kuwaiti Embassy.  The Kuwaiti dinner was the kickoff to a weekend full of activities sponsored by the Susan G. Komen Foundation, including the "Honoring the Promise" event at the Kennedy Center Saturday evening with Laura Bush.  The Kuwaiti Embassy holds a special place in my heart because I was honored at the Kuwaiti Embassy for my work as a youth ambassador to the Kuwait-American Foundation's "Do The Write Thing Campaign" which gives middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives through classroom discussions and writings. 

Where are all the breast cancer donations going this month?

Do you know?  To breast cancer research, education, some national organization? Why not keep your donations in the community?   Help someone locally who cannot afford their treatments.....like The Tigerlily Foundation has done time and time again!

The Tigerlily Foundation's motto is “impacting young women’s lives before, during and after breast cancer.”   It has been helping local victims of breast cancer with financial assistance when breast cancer strikes, and health insurance may not be enough.

DC Magazine Celebrates its Fifth Anniversary in Style

Some people just understand luxury. Clearly, the leaders and staff of DC Magazine are among those in the know.

Last night, DC Magazine celebrated its fifth anniversary. The event, which was wall-to-wall packed with interesting and beautiful people, happened at PNC Place at 800 17th Street, NW, in the District. And while a bank seems an unlikely location for such a gathering, it ultimately proved to be top-notch.

DC Magazine is one of 13 city-regional magazines published by Modern Luxury Media, a style authority. DC Magazine is noted for its coverage of all-things-fine with respect to dining, nightlife, design and travel. But it’s also respected for its know-how regarding cutting-edge fashion, with coverage spanning local, country-wide and international trends.
