Dining in DC and Pink Jams

Congrats to Renee who won over $1200 worth of dining gift certificates.

On November 18, 2009, hundreds of Washingtonians (and out of town supporters) joined together to support Breast Cancer awareness to a younger audience through music, fashion, and fun. Dining in DC garnered the support of many local DC restaurants including the new Kellari Taverna, Birch and Barley, Blackfinn, and longtime veterans such as Taberna del Alabardero.

Restaurants donated the following items to contribute to the Dining in DC gift basket, which raised the most money as any raffle item with nearly $500 tickets purchased,  in order to raise money to support Pink Jams and the Avon Breast Cancer walk:

  • Kellari Taverna – Chef’s Tasting Dinner for Two with Wine Pairings ~$300 value
  • Taberna del Alabardero – Chef’s Tasting Dinner for Two ~$250 value
  • Birch & Barley – Chef’s Tasting Dinner for Two with Beer Pairings ~$250 value
  • Wildfire restaurant – $150 dining gift certificates
  • Urbana – Gratis glass of Proseccu (2) ** also donated items for the VIPremier swag bags
  • Firefly – Complimentary Small Plate and Glass of Wine ** also donated items for the VIPremier swag bags
  • Againn – Butterscotch Pudding Desert Mix
  • Red Dog Café – $10 gift card
  • P.F. Chang’s – $25 dining certificate and two complimentary kids’ meals
  • Blackfinn – $25 dining certificate and $20 coupon ** also donated items for the VIPremier swag bags
  • Let’s Dish – $50 gift certificate and $10 coupon ** also donated items for the VIPremier swag bags

Renee and her husband, Corey live in Old Town, Alexandria and eat out about 3-4 times a month. She says, “We came home from PinkJams and opened the foodie basket.  There are so many great gift cards and tastings.  It’s a wonderful treat around the Holidays.  I just wanted to say thank you. It was a great event and I hope you were able to enjoy it. I’ll be sure to update you on how some of our tastings and meals out are enjoyed.”

Congrats again to Renee and Corey! Enjoy!

Union Jacks Pinkn JamsIf you missed the November 18 concert, be sure not to miss the next event on December 18th in Bethesda, MD. PINK JAMS! teams up with Union Jacks of Bethesda to host its first breast cancer awareness event across the river. Richmond-based band Louisiana Territory and our own Memphis 59 are pulling out all the stops on a Friday night! Come join Pink Jams for some good ole-fashion rock and roll.  The $10 suggested donation allows you to enjoy $3 drinks, including spirits, beer and house wines. (Excludes top-shelf liquor and Boddington’s Pub Ale and Guinness). 100% of the donation goes to support Pink Jams! and the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

Union Jacks is just a two blocks from the Bethesda metro! Invite your friends, show your support for PINK JAMS! and breast cancer awareness. Hope to see you there!
