Tomorrow evening I am attending and volunteering at a premier culinary and beverage tasting fundraising event in Washington, DC. I highly encourage people in the Washington area to consider purchasing a ticket for what promises to be a fabulous evening of charity, food, wine, and fun!

Together, we help economically distressed adults develop the job-search competence, the necessary soft and hard skills, and the access to professional networks to secure sustainable and career-advancing employment and be employable in the rapidly changing global economy.
