The DC Ecowomen Annual Holiday Party was an exciting kickoff to this year’s holiday season.

On Wednesday night, over 100 women – and men – joined together at Cause, or “The Philanthropub,” for one of the only primarily social events put on by DC Ecowomen.

At the event, we enjoyed finger food, good happy hour specials, and an excellent array of raffle prizes including gifts such as tickets to the National Aquarium, gift cards from MOM’s Organic Market, beautiful jewelry from Eco-Artware, and more.

This party captured the essence of DC Ecowomen. It provided a way for newcomers to DC get involved in the environmental community, and for veterans to expand their network. And in fact, there was a very good proportion of women who said the holiday party was their first DC Ecowomen event. It just goes to show that it’s never too late to get involved in a new community.

Throughout the year, thanks to the events put on by DC Ecowomen, we have the opportunity to learn valuable skills from influential experts about excelling in environmental careers in the city. During the holiday party, we had the chance to meet and learn from each other instead.

It’s inspiring to see all of the women that do such great, important work, and equally wonderful to give these women an outlet to talk about what they are most passionate about.

On the way out, guests were given small gift bags with apple-shaped sugar cookies. More importantly, they were given new friends and connections, and wonderful memories to take with them.

Happy holidays everyone.

Special thanks to the following companies for donating raffle prizes: Eco-artware.com; Divine Chocolate; Casey Trees; Main Event Caterers; MOM’s Organic Market; Chix; National Aquarium in Baltimore; Sarah Brooks; Joyful One Prodcution; Christina Sorrento; Nicole Dvorak.
