Butterfly Bash Kickoff!
Last night we went to the Butterfly Bash Kickoff at a Cleveland Park residence.
We snapped co-chairs and Solidcore's Anne Mahlum and Compass' Mandy Mills with Fair Chance founder Amanda Marshall and executive director Gretchen Van der Veer, and co-host Ethos Strategic Consulting president Joiwind Ronen.
Since 2002, Fair Chance has partnered with 93 nonprofits and opened doors to opportunity for 80,000 children. The kickoff launched the Butterfly Bash Host Committee and was co-hosted by Amit Ronen, right, here with Compass’ Chris Mills and David Getson.
Fair Chance will honor Cathy Merrill Williams at the Fair Chance Butterfly Bash Nov. 6 for her dedication to youth-serving nonprofits. Here, Fair Chance's Kristen Barney and Reginald Grant are flanked by City Kids Wilderness Project executive director Eloise Russo and Healthy Babies Project executive director Regine Elie.
The Butterfly Bash will welcome 700 for cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, music and dancing to support Fair Chance’s work improving the lives of children in DC’s most underserved communities. Here, Acteon’s Roman Dmitriev, Wash Post’s Julie McKee and Compass’ Gene Martinez.
