Congrats to LIFT-DC on an Inspiring Autumn Celebration!

We were honored to share our work in Washington, D.C. with you at last night’s Autumn Benefit.   We were also moved and inspired by the ongoing commitment of the LIFT-DC family – our clients and their families, volunteers, Board and staff, event chairs, and host committee – and by the overwhelming show of new support.

At Thanksgiving celebrations all over the city and country next week, families and loved ones will gather to re-affirm a sense of connectivity that we believe is necessary in each of our lives. We felt that in the room last night. We are proud to live in a city where neighbors care for neighbors. Washington, D.C. is a place where we realize that supporting one another in times of need is what makes our city a community. Thank you for joining LIFT-DC in this effort.

Last night alone we raised $10,000 and were able to fully utilize the LIFT-DC Advisory Boards’ generous match of $10,000 – a huge thank you to everyone who donated. We still have $5,000 left to raise in order to reach our event goal of $100,000.  We hope that you will consider making a donation in support of LIFT-DC.  Your gift will directly contribute to transforming lives for those in need in our community.

To see select photos from last night’s celebration, visit our Flickr photostream. Special thanks to Dean Souleles for his help with photography last night. We had several requests to see the “LIFT Story” video from the program last night, and you can find that on our YouTube channel.

We look forward to keeping you informed of our progress throughout the year with ongoing updates about our impact in the District. Thank you again!
