You are cordially invited to join The Art League & The Alexandria Court Service Units SOHO’s celebratory art exhibit this Thursday, June 10th at 5:30.

SOHO - Space of Her Own is an art-based program that serves 5th grade girls “by providing yearlong mentoring through engagement in creative art activities and meaningful community service projects”.  At the end of each year, each girl’s bedroom is renovated, “HGTV-style”, as a way to provide them their very own safe haven to thrive.

I had the fortunate opportunity to serve as a mentor two years ago and truly can’t encourage your attendance and support enough.

For more information about SOHO, or to learn how to become a volunteer, call 703-519-1741.

The Art Leagues’ Duke Street Annex.  One Duke Street (Corner of Duke & South Union Streets).  Old Town Alexandria, VA.

You Could Be On HGTV!

HGTV‘s “My First Sale” is casting in the DC-area!

The show runs in prime time on national TV and is looking for “motivated, first time sellers who are excited about sharing their story on television”.  Candidates must be “financially candid” and willing to share with America all the stress (and joy) that goes into selling residential real estate during a depressed economy.

And if getting your 15-minutes of fame isn’t prize enough, compensation for airing all of your dirty laundry on national TV is a DVD copy of the episode.

If you are interested – please, please apply!  I can’t think of a better way to spend my evening than watching you try and sell and your place.  No seriously, I really can’t.
