WASHINGTON - Aug. 20, 2014 - PRLog -- In a less than a month, a Ward 8 community cornerstone will celebrate nine years of hard work among eleven non-profit organizations and supporters. On Saturday, September 13, 2014 the fundraising gala AfterDark @ THEARC will bring guests east of the Anacostia River to witness the impact made by the Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus as well as experience the facility first-hand.

THEARC is a "home away from home" for the many children and adults residing in Ward 8. The facility offers programming & resources fit for the entire family. Members can participate in dance classes, music instruction, fine arts, academics, continuing education, mentoring, tutoring, recreation, and receive medical and dental care at a substantially reduced cost or no cost at all. Partnering organizations at THEARC include: Building Bridges Across the River, Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington's FBR Branch, Children's Health Center at THEARC, Corcoran ArtReach, Covenant House Washington, Levine Music, Lift-DC, Parklands Community Center, Trinity University at THEARC, The Washington Ballet and Washington School for Girls. In addition to a regulation-sized gymnasium, libraries, computer labs, playgrounds and an organic garden, THEARC is the site of the first full-service theater in southeast D.C.

AfterDark @ THEARC is an elegant and exciting evening honoring these eleven resident nonprofit organizations. It is a night of cocktails, cultural performances, delightful entertainment and a deliciously prepared dinner held in order to raise funds for each partner organization at THEARC. Every year, community members, foreign dignitaries, political figures, corporate supporters and neighboring non-profit organizations witness the talent of our aspiring artists, dancers and musicians.

A chic cocktail reception is held within the lobby, the theater revue in THEARC Theater, and the seated dinner and headline performance in the transformed boys & girls club gymnasium. Guest even dine on vegetables picked fresh from THEARC's on-site organic garden.

Gala chair Michelle Freeman of the Carl M. Freeman Foundation, remarks:

“THEARC truly is a beacon of hope. Knowing that you are helping in such a big way puts a smile on your face.”

AfterDark @ THEARC has quickly become a highly anticipated social event for a great cause. The event is sure to be a fun yet meaningful experience to all who attend.
