I am thrilled to invite you all to two events taking place in October that will raise funds for D.C. students to experience arts education opportunities in our city. I serve on the board for both organizations and have witnessed first hand the impact the arts have had on students served. I hope you DC This Week readers can join me for one or both! Cheers. Jade
