“What a marvelous occasion …”

A splendid time was had by all at the WHF Foundation 20th Anniversary Reception on September 28th.  More than 100 people—WHF members, event sponsors, WHF Foundation grant recipients and guests—attended. Highlights from the Foundation’s 20 years were presented in a special video which ran throughout the evening.  The view from the McDermott Building was gorgeous, food and beverage plentiful and delicious. Representatives from all six 2017 WHF Foundation grantees were there—Bridges to Independence, Calvary Women’s Services, Doorways for Women and Families, Good Shepherd Housing and Family Services, Inc., Interfaith Works and Open Arms Housing—as well as Trinity Washington University.  Well-known banking and finance supervision analyst Jonathan Fiechter brought the evening’s celebration full circle, as it was Jonathan who two decades earlier had suggested WHF members leverage their expertise in housing and finance to counsel under-served populations in the DC Metropolitan area. The Silent Auction offered vacation home stays, bobble heads from the Washington Nationals, theatre tix…and more.  Watch this space for more information, including links to the history video, speaker remarks, and (drum roll) the amount of funds raised for the Foundation’s grant making program.  Thanks to all who sponsored, attended, helped organize and bid on auction items!  Job well done.
