Giving Back One Brunch at a Time

Two years ago I had an idea to create a brunch event that also served the community. After all, I loved going to brunch with friends and giving back. Thus, Brunch for a Cause DC was born!

Brunch for a Cause DC provides an opportunity for like minded people to come together to networking, enjoy great food and share in the experience of supporting non-profit organizations that are making an impact in the local community. We have so much fun; each brunch feels like an afternoon with family!

On Saturday, June 12, 2016, 40 of us came together at Cooper Canyon Grill in downtown Silver Spring, MD for Brunch For A Cause DC 2016; to support the Montgomery County Coalition for the Homeless (MCCH). MCCH helps those who are homeless move into permanent housing. Often times, those residence walk into completely empty apartments and are in need of basic supplies.

Everyone was asked to bring at least two toiletry items. These donations were used to create 25 toiletry baskets  for those MCCH clients that were moving into permanent homes. We were also able to provide a monetary donation of $250.  Amazing!

Thanks to our amazing sponsors who provided raffle prizes and gift bag items: Made In., Dove Chocolates DiscoveriesLove Light and LavenderNubian HuemanIjeona & Co., RESPECT DC by PRSVR and Royal Blue.
