WINE, BEER, FOOD, AND A VIEW AT THE BEAUTIFUL CEDAR KNOLL IN ALEXANDRIA
This year, we are happy to offer IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL tickets!
In-person guests will enjoy drinks and hors d’oeuvres while taking in waterfront views of the mighty Potomac from the restaurant, which is situated on property once owned by our first president. The patio and lawn areas will be open to encourage social distancing. Attendees are welcome to bring picnic blankets and/or chairs to enjoy the evening outside!
Virtual guests will pick up a ‘take-out’ package* of hors d’oeuvres, and their choice of either wine (three 2.5oz wine pours in mini bottles), or beer (three beers). *Pick up details to follow. PLEASE NOTE: Registration for the Virtual Ticket option has a cut-off date of Sunday, August, 9th.
Proceeds from our Grapes & Hops event will go toward our Children’s Resources program that helps ensure that children in our housing programs do not miss out on critical after-school and extracurricular enrichment activities simply because their families are on a tight budget. This long-standing program has been providing our children with school supplies, tutoring, access to summer camps, music lessons, and field trips.
This year, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the unsurety on the return to school in the Fall, we are expanding the program to assist GSH resident families with childcare-related needs. These funds will help alleviate the financial burden related to securing childcare for those parents who are back to work full-time, while their children are attend online schooling from home, or may only be attending school part-time.
