Georgetown Village Annual Fundraiser 

Thursday, May 9th 
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Foley & Lardner LLP
3000 K Street NW

The success of our annual fundraiser has allowed us to keep our membership dues at the same rate since we launched our Village 7 years ago! (What other costs can you think of  that have not increased in 7 years?!

We need YOUR help to be able to continue this success. At the fundraiser we host a Silent Auction that is crucial to the fundraising efforts. In order for the auction to be a success we need to offer quality goods, services and opportunities. If you are a frequent customer at any of the local shops, please bring them a form to donate to our silent auction. If you own a vacation home or have airline tickets you can offer that would be great! If you have lovely giftware you are not using and would like to donate we would appreciate it. Please call Gail Nordheimer or the GV office if you have something  to donate or questions about what we can accept.
