Thank you so much to everyone who attended the successful Spirit of Georgetown last Thursday, October 17. What a party, and what at turnout! This was our most successful Spirit of Georgetown event to date, and we cannot thank everyone enough who gave and attended the event.
Anyone who was at the event last Thursday or was in the area saw the flashing lights and the secret service standing in front of the home of Brooke and Stephane Carnot, who hosted the Spirit. We didn’t know until the day of that we would have special guests– Vice President Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden.
Gunther presented Page Evans with The Freddie, our humanitarian award named to memorialize a man who died in a phone booth in Georgetown and whose death prompted the community to found GMC. Page has helped GMC in so many ways ranging from planning past Spirit events to talking about homelessness with local elementary school students to calling GMC about homeless individuals she meets on the street who need help.
It was a beautiful night and event, and we of course could not have done it without this year’s co-chairs, Carrington Tarr, Colman Riddell, Elizabeth Hague, and Amy Porter Stroh. Special thanks also to Brooke and Stephane Carnot for hosting the event, and to our sponsors: Broad Branch Market, partyhands, Washington Fine Properties, and Well Oiled Wine.

We’d love to see your pictures from the Spirit, so please feel free to send them to us!
