Local professionals and entrepreneurs gathered at Jordan’s 8 Restaurant, in Capitol Hill, to celebrate the establishment’s “DC’s Top Spot” honor and to raise funds for non-profit organization Women Empowered Against Domestic Violence (WEAVE). Attendees enjoyed an evening of music, quality conversation, mini make-overs, cocktails and complimentary sushi.
The event was hosted by Justine Love, Community Affairs Director for WPGC FM. Harry Thomas, Jr., Ward 5 Council Member, and Jeni Gamble, Executive Director for WEAVE, addressed the audience about the gravity of domestic violence and the importance of supporting community organizations that aim to irradicate the issue.
April Watts, What’s Hot Washington Publisher, awarded Jordan Cappolla, owner of Jordan’s 8 Restaurant, with a crystal Washington Monument for being voted “DC’s Top Spot for Sushi”, by WHW readers. “Sushi Social” was the first of a series of What’s Hot Washington events designed to bring together local enterprise and local charities.
