“What: City Market at O Holiday Tree Lighting Event
When: November 21, 2014 6:30 – 8:30 pm
Where: 8th & O Street, NW
Join Roadside Development, the residents of City Market at O, and DC officials for the first annual Shaw Holiday Tree Lighting on November 21, 2014. The event is also a celebration of City Market at O’s one-year anniversary.
The community program will feature live performances, free family activities and crafts, performances by local artists, and the tree lighting ceremony.
The event includes a toy drive to benefit the Children’s National Medical Center Holiday Toy Store, a pop-up store within the hospital during the holidays so parents can shop for presents for their children who are patients. The store also has items that children can buy for their parents. Roadside Development will supplement the toy drive with a cash donation.
City Market at O is also providing support for the Goodwill at The Grill, an annual community Thanksgiving breakfast, hosted by the Florida Avenue Grill. Revenue generated from the sales at the Anniversary Celebration will be donated to Florida Avenue Grill’s signature event on November 25 that benefits hundreds in the community.
