The Washington Center (TWC) hosted its alumni holiday party on Thursday, December 5th. In partnership with Microsoft, lead sponsor for the night, the event was held at the Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center, which provided spectacular views of the nation's capital. Another major supporting sponsor was eBay, who helps host a variety of alumni panels and programming events throughout TWC's academic year.

 

Guests were given the opportunity to enjoy inspiring civic engagement project presentations from current fall 2013 interns, interactive games like "Just Dance 2014" on the sold out Xbox One, and reconnect with over TWC 100 alumni and staff. In addition, TWC partnered with 16 local and corporate businesses and retailers who donated some great raffle prizes for the event, including:

 

  1. Microsoft's Xbox One
  2. Southwest Airlines-Two Round Trip Vouchers
  3. Barrel Oak Winery-Tasting for Eight with Two Bottles of Wine
  4. International Spy Museum-Tickets
  5. Old Ebbitt Grill-Gift Certificate
  6. The Washington Nationals-Autographed Adam LaRoche Baseball
  7. The Washington Capitals-Autographed Marcus Johansson Washington Capitals Player Card
  8. Potomac River Boats Tours-Two VIP Boarding Passes for Washington Monuments Cruise
  9. The Fillmore Silver Spring-Concert Tickets
  10. TWC Gala-Tickets
  11. Sprinkles Cupcakes-Gift Certificate
  12. &pizza-Gift Cards
  13. Aveda-Gift Cards
  14. D.C. United Tickets
  15. Five Guys Burgers and Fries-Gift Cards
  16. Washington Wizards-Tickets

$2,500 was raised from tickets and raffle sales, with all proceeds going towards TWCs year-end goal of raising $15,000 for its Civic Engagement Awards. Each year over 50 students are recognized with scholarship support for their commitment to service in their local communities.

 

In so many ways, TWC alumni continue to "pay it forward" and provide a pillar of support for students, and for each other.
