CasA Crestwood Homes Tour To Benefit Thrive DC
This Sunday, get an inside look at six stunning homes and one historic church in Washington, D.C.’s Crestwood neighborhood.
A few of the most notable sites that will be included on the tour, known as known as CasA Crestwood, is The Mathewson House, which is described as “part art museum, part home.” The architecture firm behind the property, Shinberg.Levinas, describes the white stucco abode as having dark flooring, a cantilevered open stair, and a skylight.
It was previously featured in the Washington Post for being an “ultramodern house in the trees.”
The church that will be featured is the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, located at 4001 17th Street NW. Constructed in 1958, this church offers gilded domes, murals, and a four-tiered iconostasis.
The event starts at 2 p.m. and ends at 6 p.m. Tickets start at $20 for tickets bought in advance and raise to $25 per person at the door. 100 percent of the proceeds from this year’s event go to Thrive D.C., a 1979-founded nonprofit dedicated to ending homelessness in the District.
Friday, December 2nd Thrive DC served over 300 people breakfast in the morning and outfitted them with winter coats, hats, scarves, gloves, and blankets.
Thank you to everyone who supported us this month with donation drives and purchases from our Amazon Wish List. Thanks to you we had many items available to choose from and almost everyone in need was able to be satisfied.
This comes just in time as Arctic winds are expected to hit Washington, DC Wednesday - Friday this week. Temperatures will drop to the mid 20's at night and struggle to rise above 40 degrees. The full outfitting Thrive DC was able to provide will hopefully prove lifesaving support to the individuals living outside in the freezing weather, risking hypothermia.
Despite the strong showing this past Friday, Thrive DC will be hosting two more Coat Drives throughout the winter. Please help us spread the word to continue collecting much needed welcome warmth for our clients.¢
