We want to feel connected to the place we live and to our fellow neighbors. This event gives us the opportunity to relax, to spend time with friends new and old, and to build our sense of connection to the vibrant and diverse Petworth neighborhood.
2. It’s good to give back, and it feels good, too.
This event is a great way to contribute to a local cause. Proceeds of the evening cover the market’s operational costs and all contributions are tax deductible. But most importantly, it gives everyone a chance to enjoy the benefits of the the Market (see below).
3. Our low-income neighbors deserve access to healthy foods.
Donations from this event also allow us to offer our SNAP/WIC matching program which enables recipients to receive up to $20 extra to spend each week on food at the market. Access to healthy, local foods should be possible for everyone, and here’s a way to help make this happen.
4. A fabulous silent auction.
So many local DC businesses have generously donated amazing items to auction off this year. Plus, we will be handing out door prizes throughout the night. You receive more door prize tickets if you buy your entrance tickets online. So, buy your tickets here now!
It’s been a long winter. Spring is finally here so let’s have some fun. Chez Billy. Drink Specials. Delicious food. Silent Auction. Door Prizes. Friends. Neighbors. Need I say more?
