On March 28th, 2011, the Rosedale Citizens' Alliance (RCA) in association with Greater DC Cares held its first fundraiser for the RCA Community Scholarship Program. It was a wonderful and successful evening. Good food, wonderful atmosphere, community members and Friends of Rosedale all came together with an overwhelming response.
Due to the support of community business owners and Friends of Rosedale, we were able to raise over $500 towards our goal of $2,500 to award $300-$500 scholarships to people pursuing higher education opportunities in the Rosedale and Kingman Park neighborhoods.
RCA and Greater DC Cares are very grateful to Langston Bar & Grille and it's staff, B&B Barber Shop, The Argonaut, Master Liquors, Rosedale Youth Institute and Councilmember Tommy Wells and his staff and all other attendees for their support and contributions. We could not have done it with out everyone's commitment and spirit.
We also want to congratulate the raffle winners: Scott Frick, Kathryn & Kyle Russell and Tim Schwab; we hope you enjoy your prizes. Please stay posted for additional information on upcoming events in our continued efforts to meet the goal for this RCA Community Scholarship Fund.
