Monday, November 11 at 09:00 AM Food & Friends

 

Join RPCV/W this Veterans Day and help prepare warm meals for neighbors living with life-challenging illnesses.

Winter Party: 2019 Edition!

Saturday, December 07 at 07:00 PM Saint Yves

Join us for our biggest event of the year, bringing together hundreds of RPCVs and friends of all different ages and countries of service, and from all across the District-Maryland-Virginia area.

This year's event will be held at Saint Yves, located at the intersection of 18th and Connecticut NW. RPCV/W will have the whole place to ourselves (!) from 7-11pm. The venue is conveniently located between Farragut West and Dupont Circle metros -- the use of public transportation is highly encouraged.

The event will feature a limited open bar, hors d'oeuvres, a wine toss, music, photo booth, and other surprises. Please contact our Special Events Director to request any special dietary needs or accommodations.

New 2020 Board to be Announced!

This will also be a chance to meet RPCV/W's 2020 Board of Directors! Elections will take place in November (stay tuned to our newsletter and social media for details) and the new board will be present to greet members. The out-going board will be there to pass the torch. 

Volunteers Needed

We are in need of three volunteers to assist with set up, logistics, and other event details. For those interested in volunteering, please email specialevents@rpcvw.org as soon as possible. 

Wine Toss and Raffle

We're bringing back the fun! This year's venue will have plenty of nooks and crannies for dancing, photo-taking, and activities! If you are willing to donate wine, or can solicit wine donations on RPCV/W's behalf, please contact Development Director Jonathan Keenan at development@rpcvw.org. We will also hold a raffle with some fun prizes -- if you have gift cards, gift baskets, event tickets, or anything of the like you'd like to donate to the cause, Jonathan will coordinate these donations. Companies interested in sponsoring the event are also welcome!


Thank you, and we look forward to celebrating another wonderful year with our amazing DC Peace Corps community, all in one great place!
