Thanks, Ben!

Thanks, Ben!

DC United’s Ben Olsen hosted another successful art show last night to benefit Bread for the City. Having organized this event so that he could “give back to the community that has given me so much,” Ben sold some of his own pieces, alongside works from the Redskin’s Chris Cooley, Susan Burnstine, Mike Dowley, Rosemary Feit Covey, Ben Ferry, Katri Hunter, Choichun Leung, Peter Loge, and Michael Weber.

The art show was co-hosted at Morton Fine Art, Stussy and Commonwealth, all along on Florida Avenue between 17th and 18th streets. Catering was provided by Occasions Catering, and drinks from 18th Amendment and Premier Distributors. It was truly a night of everyone coming together, bringing to the table what they had to offer, so that critical dollars could be raised for the poorest in our community.

The night was a huge success! Thanks to everyone for coming out. Our volunteer photographer, Jessica Delvecchio, took some great photos which we’ve uploaded to Flickr here. Check them out!
