Fundraiser to Benefit New Capitol Hill Nonprofit for Women
An upcoming reception is set to help raise money for a newly opened nonprofit for women on Capitol Hill.
The fundraiser will be held at the National Association of Realtors (500 New Jersey Ave. NW) and will help benefit HER, a resiliency center aimed at helping women in need and located at 122 C. St. NW.
During the event, patrons will “enjoy light refreshments and drinks while learning more about our work and how you can help make a difference in the lives of DC’s vulnerable young women.” All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to HER.
The center, which launched last week, provides guidance, life skills and employment readiness training to young women in need between the ages of 18 and 25.
“The first focus that we’re going to be putting our effort toward … is making sure our young women have the time they need to get on their feet,” HER founder Natasha Guynes said before the launch. “We’ll begin teaching them how to take care of themselves as an adult and how to be a member of the community.”
