Friday evening saw the return of the SOME Junior Gala
to the Corcoran Gallery of Art
, with hundreds of Washington's rising young professionals in attendance.
Organized by some of the youngest supporters of the D.C.-based nonprofit known as So Others Might Eat
(SOME), proceeds from the black tie optional affair benefited the organization's affordable housing program initiatives.
An interfaith, community-based charity that serves the city's underprivileged, SOME is committed to breaking the cycle of homelessness by offering services, such as affordable housing, job training, addiction treatment, and counseling, which help program participants more permanently establish a path to self-sufficiency.
One of the nonprofit's marquee fundraising events of the year, Friday's benefit featured flowing cocktails and live music by The Blue Tips Rhythm Revue
band, which kept the dance floor moving until the stroke of midnight.
Beyond ticket sales, the night raised funds by offering simultaneous raffle and silent auctions, with prizes including everything from a $1,600 bottle of 2000 Mouton-Rothschild, a signed Washington Capitals jersey, Caps game tickets, and $995 Moncler men's jacket.
Even the after party boasted a charitable component, with Georgetown weekend hotspot George
donating $5.00 to the organization for each guest coming from the gala.
SOME fun, eh?
