Horton's Kids comes to Georgetown
Donors and supporters of Horton’s Kids, the 20 year old non-profit that provides services to children living in Anacostia, convened in Georgetown last night at the organization’s fourth annual fundraiser, “Cocktails & Crooners.”
Approximately 200 lobbyists, lawyers and locals wined and dined at the House of Sweden, enjoying hors d'oeuvres served by hostesses with ‘cigarette’ trays reminiscent of the 1940’s with live Big Band music by Radio King Orchestra. Special guest Emcee Spike Mendelsohn of Top Chef fame, a long-time supporter of Horton’s Kids, mingled with the crowd and offered special thanks to individual and corporate donors.
Despite a brief, false-alarm fire drill which sent the crowd onto the balmy, moon-lit back terrace overlooking a tributary of Rock Creek, the audience enjoyed poached salmon, desserts by Serendipity 3, and a silent auction featuring some iconic black-and-white photos of Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra.
