Eight months ago, we celebrated our first year anniversary with a party hosted by Front Page Arlington. It was a huge success, as over 150 lovely readers came out to hang with us. That night we even did some good by raising $1,000 for Love146, a charity near and dear to the heart of friend-of-the-blog Samantha Casey.
Since that party went so well, we decided, “Ah, what the heck! Let’s have another one.” So next Saturday, March 12, our blog will be hosting our second shindig wondrously titled RMNB Party 2: Electric Boogaloo. (You can thank Neil for the name.) This year’s celebration will once again be held at the Front Page restaurant in Arlington, VA and we’ll be there meeting and greeting with our readers from 6pm until midnight.
Here’s a brief synopsis of the evening’s festivities:
Things to keep in mind:
Finally, while RMNB Party 2: Electric Boogaloo is funny in name, it is serious in purpose. Proceeds from the silent auction and raffle are going to benefit The Brian & Emily St. Louis Family Fund.
Way back in September, Brian St. Louis, a youth hockey coach and hockey director at the Kettler Capitals Iceplex, passed away suddenly at the Ballston rink. Brian was a beloved member of the Washington Little Capitals, Kettler Capitals Iceplex, and the DC area hockey community. His widow Emily is currently expecting their first child this month.
This story deeply resonated with us, and we hope you’ll join us on the 12th to not only have some fun, but also help make a difference for a local family who could use our love and support.
If you can’t make it to the party, but are still interested in contributing to the fund, we highly urge you to send a donation to:
The Brian & Emily St. Louis Family Fund
In care of CRP Management Group
P.O. Box 1548
Ashburn, VA 20146
In closing, if any of you have any questions or would like to help out or volunteer, please shoot us an email or leave us a note in the comments below and we’ll get back to you. See you next week!
