Charity Closet!

Washington DC The Scene

City Center got into the holiday spirit with Charity Closet, a unique shopping experience for a great cause. Here, Jackie Cassar, Ann Trowbridge, Trunk Club’s Kerry Orra and The Ezra Co.’s Erica King.


It was sponsored by locally cultivated True Honey Teas. Here, its founder Chris Savage, Nature Conservancy’s Lauren Ludi, The Cadmus Group’s Mariya Ho and GEICO’s Andrea Paton-Ash. In addition to tea, guests drank sangria and champagne and noshed on dessert.


Guests shopped couture once-worn pieces that needed a new home; all proceeds benefit two great charities, Mama Hope and Dreams for Kids DC. Here, event organizers Ivis Alfaro, Tu-Anh Ha, Glenda Fu, Jennifer Ro and Mariya Ho.
