Heard it through the Grapevine— there will be Good Vibrations at the 2024 Capitol Hill Village Gala April 20 at St. Mark’s Church.

Mark your calendars now for this annual event where CHV and the community come together to have a good time and raise funds that support critical Capitol Hill Village programs and services. Along with that serious work, it is, of course, an evening for fun, and Captain Dave Wilbar will be spinning favorites from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Get your requests in now.

Look for favorite dances from the eras, trivia games, good tunes to listen to, some good food, and plenty of opportunity to mingle with friends— new and old.

Let’s talk about the on-line auction that accompanies the Gala.
This is an important fundraising activity, and here are some things that you can do to help.

Vacation homes are very popular. We have listings from all over the country, but we need new listings. Do you, or someone you know, have access to a home, condo, or apartment that would be an attractive getaway for a few days or longer? The rules are up to you—you set the available dates, restrictions on pets, smoking, etc.

Salons offer the opportunity for small group conversations with interesting guests. They are generally held in member homes and can be dinner, brunch, or a cocktail party. If you have suggestions for a person to invite or would consider hosting one of these events, let’s talk.

✿ The on-line auction will include interesting items and experiences. If there is a local business or restaurant or theater that you have a relationship with, ask them to contribute a gift certificate for the auction, or better yet, ask them to become a Gala sponsor (scroll down to see the Sponsorship levels).

Do you have a service you are willing to offer in our auction? In the past this has included landscape design, foreign language instruction/conversation, small group tours of local places of note, and even use of a truck for trips to the dump. Do you have an opportunity or service to offer?

Finally, we need volunteers to help with Gala and auction planning— helping with publicity, planning activities and decorations around the theme, soliciting auction items and sponsorships.

Capitol Hill VillageCapitol Hill Village is a model for a grassroots response to support our country’s aging population in a dignified and resource-efficient way.  Continually improving, we are expanding and refining our services, including new membership pilots, new service types, increased educational programs and ever-broadening partnerships.  At the same time, we are taking on a larger role across local and national discussions around aging, health and fitness, housing and the financial impacts of the fastest growing segment of our population—those over 60.  And remember, Capitol Hill Village programs serve all members of our community, reducing reliance on public resources.
