Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business will be hosting the first annual “McDonough Fight Night” at the Sphinx Club with a goal of raising $10,000 for the International Justice Mission (IJM).
This organization’s goal is to rescue victims of human rights abuse all over the world. Events like our fundraiser help this Washington, D.C. based non-governmental organization to provide assistance to victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression. All proceeds from ticket sales will benefit IJM.
This event will feature amateur boxers from Georgetown University and is sanctioned and insured through the United States Intercollegiate Boxing Association (USIBA).
Cocktails, food, and dancing will follow the matches.
Dress code is cocktail attire. VIP tickets are on sale now for $75 and $50 for general admission.

Art All Night: Nuit Blanche DC presents an eclectic evening of music, activities, and visual and performing artists.
Based on a festival concept that began in Paris, the event offers area residents and visitors an exciting opportunity to engage with DC arts and artists. This year, through the efforts of the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities the festival will include the Dupont Circle, Shaw, North Capitol, H Street NE and Congress Heights Main Streets. Each neighborhood will host its own unique mix of artistic programming for audiences to enjoy.
The Main Streets and DCCAH hope to attract audiences of up to 15,000 people in one night.
The event takes place before the last Washington Nationals home weekend game against the Miami Marlins at 4:05pm, so be sure to bring your DC pride and enjoy a day full of drinking, delicious food, and live entertainment!
Tickets ($45) here! (Please check “Greg’s List DC” as your reference!)

This will be a night of farm to table food for a great cause. Chef Grace Lichaa returns to Washington, D.C. to cook up a fall harvest dinner to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank.
She’ll prepare a savory, four course menu made with seasonal ingredients provided by From the Farmer (http://fromthefarmerdc.com/). You’ll feast family-style in a unique setting – the training kitchen at the Capital Area Food Bank.
Grace is an experienced chef and food educator, who many will remember in 2012 was the first-ever D.C. Chef to win “Chopped” on the Food Network. Before moving to Boston in early 2014, Grace worked as D.C. regional manager at the Capital Area Food Bank. She remains a fierce advocate for hunger in our nation’s capital and beyond.
In honor of Hunger Action Month, Chef Grace, the Capital Area Food Bank, Bookalokal and From the Farmer have teamed up to host this event in hopes it will inspire you to cook for a cause, and host a similar event to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank at your home.
