“Hot Hot Hot: Fundraiser for Climate Action
A group of concerned, sustainability-minded individuals are co-hosting a benefit with the Midlands Beer Garden in Park View to combat climate change on Friday, April 28th, from 6-10pm. This event is part of the People’s Climate March “Week of Action”.
Kegs have been generously donated by Anderson Valley Brewing and Uinta Brewing. Any beers from these taps and all other proceeds will benefit Earthjustice, a nonprofit environmental law organization, fighting for action on climate change, environmental justice, and the health of our communities across the country.
In addition to drinking beers for a great cause, attendees will have the opportunity to take action and make their voices heard. The event will include stations for making rally signs for the People’s Climate March on April 29th and writing letters to lawmakers and local representatives. (more…)

“We are hosting our annual kickoff fundraiser at Ten Tigers Parlour on Monday, May 1st from 6:30-9:30 pm (3813 Georgia Avenue, NW). The weekly Saturday market will begin again on May 6.
We will have a silent auction, drink specials and a great gathering of neighbors. Funds raised will enable the market to enhance our existing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Women, Infants and Children (WIC) bonus/match program, host special events to promote community engagement and attract more neighbors, and support part-time market staff to coordinate operations and programming.
Tickets are $15, or 2 for $25 and can be purchased here.”
“Ivy and Coney is hosting the second annual Charity Gala with all proceeds benefiting Bread For The City. Your ticket gets you a sweet 80’s formal wear t-shirt, open bar and open food. We will also have a sweet charity auction featuring tons of beer swag, private chef dinners, rare booze and more. And don’t forget, every penny is going to a great cause that helps thousands of DC residents! Our goal is to raise over $15,000 while getting everyone drunk and full of hot dogs.”

Today’s the day!! Thanks again to all who donated in the fight to end childhood cancers. You guys kicked ass and PoPville broke $2000 for the first time this year. So for all who donated remember to come to Boundary Stone to pick up your t-shirts and stay for a pint or three. Also this year the Boundary Stone team has added an awesome raffle – $50 for a 1-100 chance to win a trip to win a trip to Ireland with hotels and VIP tours of Guinness and Jameson. Amazing.
My head is getting shaved around 4:15pm but I’ll be there from around 3-6. Thanks to all who’ve helped out!! See you soon(ish.)
While at the Georgetown men’s basketball game on Saturday, the Eastern High School marching band played at halftime and they mentioned they are raising funds to take a trip to New Orleans in April to play and visit Southern University, so band members can talk to the band director about possible scholarships. The Go Fund Me page is below:
eastern2neworleans The Blue and White Marching Machine is excited about the opportunity to travel to Louisiana. This will be the first time our band will be showcased in that region in over 20 years! We will be traveling to New Orleans April 28th-May 1st. As you know, it can be costly to move a large organization, so we need your help. All donations will be greatly appreciated as we embark on this adventure for our students. They will learn about the rich history of New Orleans, additionally, visit and tour prestigious HBCU “Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While on campus, students will meet with the director of bands and university administrators to discuss scholarship opportunities.
Thank you for your continued support
Help spread the word!
You guys are the best! As promised here is my daughter hugging #dingo. Remember for everyone who donated to the St. Baldrick’s fight against childhood cancers – come to the shaving event at Boundary Stone on Sunday starting at 3pm to pick up your PoPville t-shirts and stay for a beer or two. If anyone else wants in you can still donate here. Thanks all!
They are inseparable.
