Break out your checkbook, it’s time to “Spring Forward with the Village.” The annual silent auction, which benefits local non-profit Dupont Circle Village (DCV), will take place on Saturday, March 10 from 6:30 to 9:30 pm at the Woman’s National Democratic Club at 1526 New Hampshire Avenue NW.
“Spring Forward with the Village will feature more than 120 stunning entries. In addition to rare antiques, original art, and coveted theater tickets, participants can bid on a week’s stay in an elegant Paris apartment. While perusing the goods, attendees will enjoy hors d’oeuvres from around the world and cool tunes by the local quintet, Some Like it Hot.
“An historic building, great food and drinks, good company and tantalizing and unique offerings waiting for you to take them home – there’s no better way to spend an evening and support the Village,” says Dupont Circle Village President Peggy Simpson.
Dupont Circle Village promotes healthy community living for its retirement-age members. DCV relies heavily on volunteers to provide services to Villagers, including transportation, home repairs, errands and computer tech support. The Village also offers educational, social and cultural programs for its members and the greater community. Check out their website to learn more.
Spring Forward with the Village is sure to provide a fun and memorable evening that benefits an excellent local cause. To order tickets or to inquire about sponsoring the auction, contact Iris Molotsky at iris.molotsky[AT]gmail.com or at 202-328-1121.
