The Cherry Fund hosts its Giveback Reception at VIDA (1612 U St., N.W.) on Thursday, Aug. 23 from 7-9:30 p.m. The reception will give $51,700 raised from the organization’s annual fundraising weekend to local non-profits.
“We are very fortunate that we can continue to give back to our community and help support the HIV/AIDS and Mental Health Service Communities,” Board President Allen Sexton said in a statement. “We couldn’t do it without the support of our patrons, sponsors, partners, volunteers, djs, venues, and entertainers.”
Cherry will be giving back the proceeds from Cherry and Cherry Pride. Recipients will include the Blade Foundation, Trans-Latina Coalition, TRANSlaw, Us Helping Us, Capital Trans Pride, the D.C Center and many more.
There will be complimentary appetizers and Tito’s vodka drinks.
