Proceeds from the event will support YWTF: DC's work and that of N Street Village, a service provider and advocate for low-income and homeless women in Washington, DC.

This is an opportunity to socialize with other great DC people for a great cause! Enjoy wine, hors d'oeuvres, win fun raffle prizes and learn more about an important issue affecting women and children in our communities.

We look forward to seeing you there, and we invite you to help spread the word by passing this along to your friends, tweeting about it, posting it to your facebook page, etc!
