Tonight is the Dupont Circle Village (DCV) Annual Silent Aution. DCV is a neighborhood nonprofit organization that enables residents to remain in their homes and community as they grow older. DCV’s annual auction and fundraiser will be held at the Woman’s National Democratic Club, 1526 New Hampshire Avenue NW, from 6:30 pm until 10 pm.

Tickets are $35 per person in advance; $45 at the door. This year participants will be entertained by the swing band, “Some Like it Hot,” while they enjoy food and drinks.

DCV lists some of the following items up for auction this year: “It is time to forget the winter and get ready for a wonderful destination. How about France (Paris, Provence or the Tarn), a country home in beautiful Rappahannock County, Nemacolin Woods Resort in Pennsylvania, the Inn at Perry Cabin in St. Michaels, Maryland or closer to home in downtown DC at the Hilton Hotel. Start packing with Brooks Brothers leather luggage, a superb Moroccan carpetbag or, if you like to travel light, a large Louis Vuitton sac bag.”

Auction proceeds benefit DCV. The organization’s goal is to help people to “live independent, healthy and vibrant lives in familiar surroundings.” All services and benefits are provided at no cost to members by volunteers.

The Dupont Circle Village will hold their first major fundraising event, which will have the theme “Give Your Heart to the Village.” The silent auction will support the neighborhood non-profit organization devoted to enabling Dupont Circle residents aged 50+ to remain in their homes and community as they grow older.

The Village, primarily through volunteers, aims to help residents retain their independence by providing help as needs arise regarding illness, disability, temporary hardship and home maintenance. Members of the Village pay an annual fee for access to the services and social events. Many local restaurants also offer discounts to members. There are currently 105 members of the Village.
