DC AYA Fundraiser

Washington, D.C. – April 18 –DC Alliance of Youth Advocates  hosted a fundraiser at Lebanese Taverna on May 15th from 5pm to 8:30pm. The event was sponsored by RuninOut and Lebanese Taverna.

Over 60 people enjoyed an array of complimentary Lebanese dishes from Lebanese Taverna’s bestselling items and some stayed late to enjoy a Classical Egyptian Belly Dance Performance by Asala

The event raised $625 through donations and ticket sales, surpassing our goal of $500. The event also brought in a ton of people together from many different organizations across DC — an outstanding success!

RuninOut is more than an app, it is a community of great people doing great work in DC. Thanks to RuninOut’s enthusiasm and Lebanese Taverna’s delicious spread, DCAYA had our most successful fundraiser to date. Even more importantly, our community of youth advocates were able to connect in a stress-free environment, while sampling delicious cuisine. Those connections are where real change can happen.” – Angela Massino
