The DBI elves, accompanied by Disney characters Elsa and Olaf, distributed gifts to more than 150 children participating in the DCBIA 2014 Care & Share Party, an event organized annually to benefit the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Washington. In addition to receiving gifts and having pictures taken with the Frozen stars, the children played games, made crafts, and had their faces painted. Thanks to Anne Regan, Beth Todd, Jill Albers, Kaitlin Dyer, Mandy Blumenauer, Sarah Gottlieb Benjamin, and Michael Hartman for donning reindeer antlers and distributing presents, to Tracy Tato for painting the party’s beautiful snow scene mural, and to DBI’s crafty snowflake-makers, whose frosty creations were essential in bringing the Frozen theme to life.
The DCBIA Community Services Committee holds the Care & Share Party every December at the ARC facility in Southeast Washington, DC. This is DCBIA’s 19th Care & Share Party.
