On Tuesday evening,  Jack Rose Dining Saloon hosted a back-to-school fundraiser on their rooftop terrace to help Horton’s Kids get ready for school.

Despite a torrential rainstorm, folks ventured out to show their support and help raise $1,350 for the children to get school supplies and shoes. Jack Rose Dining Saloon generously donated 10% of the ring total to Horton’s Kids, provided the space and created food and drink specials.  Most enjoyable were the Mint Julep Snow Cones and the intriguing cocktail menu created by their mixologist.  Tasty sandwiches from the grill, along with half-price grilled shrimp and chicken wings kept everyone satisfied. 

Horton’s Kids, a 501c3, serves the most at-risk families of Washington, D.C., 100% of whom come from Ward 8.  Horton’s Kids is the 2011 Winner of The Washington Post Award for Excellence in Nonprofit Management.
