You're Invited: Junior League of Washington's A Capital Collection
In the words of the Zombies, it's the time of the season... for presents! Yes, Christmas/Hanukkah/birthdays for people born in December are sneaking up on us! Are you ready?
Junior League of Washington (JLW) wants to make it easy to get all your shopping done in one fell swoop! The three-day shopping event brings more than 60 merchants, including Vineyard Vines, Kate Spade, J. Crew and Sassanova, in one central location in Washington, DC - the Marriott Wardman Hotel in Woodley Park.
But ACC, as it is affectionately known among the League, is more than just a shopping event - it helps JLW raise funds to support its community service efforts in DC. A commission of all merchant sales, corporate sponsorships, ad sales, special events, admission fees and donations help the League support 25 partner organizations in DC through thousands of annual volunteer hours and more than 1,000 donated books each year. We are proud to focus our financial and volunteer resources on the complex issues of literacy in the greater Washington metropolitan area.
This Friday through Sunday, join more than 5,000 other bargain-hungry DC shoppers and head to the Marriott Wardman for the best shopping experience of the season. Buy your $10 general admission ticket by clicking here or at the door!
Junior League will also be hosting a special Girls' Night Out shopping event on Friday night from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm. Champagne and sweets will be served while you play at beauty bars sponsored by Neiman Marcus, and I'll be volunteering - so come say hi! Tickets can be bought here.
The holiday season is all about giving, and at ACC, giving is always in style.
