We went to Urban Country in Bethesda Row to celebrate its 24th Anniversary and snapped its founder and owner Rachelle Roth, with co-owners and sisters Jillian and Sascha Roth.
Silent auction proceeds benefited the Warrior Canine Connection, a pioneering Maryland-based nonprofit that uses canine connection therapy to help wounded warriors. Here, emcee, 94.7 Fresh FM's Tommy McFly, WUSA9's Andrea McCarren, and Bunce.
This year’s theme, Saluting Our Wounded Heroes, marks the 24th year Urban Country has honored local wounded vets with a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception. Here, veteran Jake Young and his service dog Lundy, with Warrior Canine Connection program support coordinator Dana Noga and executive director Rick Yount with Huff.
Auction items were donated by Antrim 1844 Bed & Breakfast, Bluemercury, Chaplin’s Restaurant, Cork & Fork, Fire & Ice, Redwood Restaurant, and VIDA Fitness. Here, Studio E. Partners’ Elisabeth Hayes and Edith Graves flank Dr. Steve Goozh and Judy Goozh.
