An elite collection of high-end 14th Street restaurants and mixologists will join together on May 9 to support Point Foundation, a national organization that provides college and graduate scholarships for LGBTQ students of merit.

Restaurants will prepare unique small plates and appetizers for Point’s DC Cornerstone event, the organization’s premier annual Washington fundraiser. Participating venues include Estadio, Marvin, Cafe Saint Ex, Pearl Dive Oyster Palace, and Black Whiskey, the newest restaurant on the 14th Street corridor.

Mixologists from Bar Pilar and The Gibson will prepare signature cocktails featuring 42 Below vodka. Barefoot Wine & Bubbly and Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. beer are included with ticket purchase.

“This is the first time we’re aware of that this many 14th Street restaurants have come together to support a common cause,” said Point Trustee Celina Gerbic. “It shows that our neighborhood restaurants recognize the importance of Point and supporting these amazing scholars. We’re thrilled to have these fantastic restaurants and mixologists participating.”

The event will be held May 9 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm at Room and Board at 14th and T, one of 14th Street’s anchor retail establishments, which is also donating a gift certificate as a raffle prize. Another 14th Street corridor establishment, Body Smith Gym, is donating a membership and training sessions to the event.

Tickets are $75 and can be purchased at the DC Cornerstone website. Advance purchase is recommended.
