Happy Hour (fundraiser) and Volunteer Opportunities

October 1, 2013

Thanks to Maureen Hughes of SPIL for these:

Habitat for Humanity will be hosting a Happy Hour this Friday, October 4th, at Blackfinn (1621 I St. NW).  They are charging $5 for a wristband, which will get you drink specials from 7-10.  Specials include $3 domestic drafts, $4 import drafts, $4 shooters, $4 rail drinks, and $5 glasses of house wine.  All proceeds from the wristbands will go towards Habitat and its upcoming build.   

The build will take place Saturday, October 12th from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.  If you are interested in volunteering at the build, please reach out to Alex Marshall at 55marshall@cardinalmail.cua.edu.  

There is another volunteer opportunity through Habitat on the weekend of the 12th.  Taste of DC needs volunteers on both the 12th and the 13th.  Taste of DC is a large annual event in which many area restaurants come together to showcase their best food and drink, and it is partnering with Habitat this year.  If you choose to volunteer at the event, you will receive a Taste of DC shirt and free snacks and drinks during your volunteer shift. You will also receive a free ticket to the event (if you volunteer for Saturday, you will get a ticket for Sunday, and if you volunteer Sunday you will get a ticket for Saturday emailed to you)!!!  This is great, because they are often pricey and the event is so much fun!  The link to sign up is here: http://tasteofdc.ivolunteer.com.    

Finally,  please consider signing up for the UNBOUND Walk, which will occur on the National Mall THIS SATURDAY the 5th!  This is another great opportunity to get SPIL volunteer hours alongside your classmates.  You can find out more information about the event here: http://unbounddc.org/  and sign up to participate here: https://www.firstgiving.com/team/243162.
