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.
In case you don’t follow the Georgetown Dish, here are pictures from this year’s Spirit of Georgetown!
It was a beautiful fall night, and GMC honored Nancy Taylor and Alan Bubes at the home of Amy and Mark Tercek. Everyone was smiling throughout the night, and the little candy bag party favors were such a sweet treat for many.
It was so good to see everyone who came, and we’re sad to have missed those who couldn’t make it. We have already started planning next year’s Spirit and hope we’ll see you there!
We here at Georgetown Ministry Center have been eager to announce this year’s Spirit of Georgetown location, and now we finally can! Please join us this fall (date still TBD) at the lovely home of Amy and Mark Tercek!
We cannot thank the Terceks enough for graciously opening their doors to us and all of our friends. Please stay tuned for the announcement of the Spirit’s date by checking the Spirit of Georgetown 2012 page, and don’t forget to stay up to date on the progress of this year’s benefit and look fondly back on last year’s benefit on our Spirit Blog!
Stay tuned for information about Spirit of Georgetown 2012– Georgetown’s Autumnal Welcome Back soirée! We are currently working on a new Spirit page for our website, but in the meantime, get excited for this year’s benefit by looking at pictures from last year’s!
