As you strolled down K street Tuesday afternoon it wasn’t hard to spot where this year’s District Sample Sale was taking place. Fashionable district ladies lined up in their best dressed ensembles, ready to take on shopping heaven at the Sphinx Club, all for a good cause.
This year’s District Sample Sale, dubbed “Washington’s most fashionable charity event,” took place Tuesday September 24 from 5:30 – 9 p.m. The VIP guests got an hour to shop before the masses flowed in the building with credit cards in hand. Over 30 shops in DC, Maryland and Virginia sold their deeply-discounted designer clothing, shoes, accessories, and bags. Washington’s best restaurants were also in attendance, giving guests samples of their cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Everything from Georgetown Cupcake, to Lincoln were served to keep guests appetites satisfied while they shopped til they dropped. There were even salons giving out free blowouts and free eyebrow threading! This event made for the perfect girls’ night out, and the fact that 100 percent of proceeds were going to charity made this event extra special.
At press time, our friends at the District Sample Sale said they had exceeded their fundraising goals to benefit N-Street Village, which is a community of empowerment and recovery for the homeless and low-income women in Washington DC.

In 2008, I launched AskMissA.com which grew from my personal blog into a site with 700 writers, covering the intersection of charity & lifestyle in 20 U.S. cities. With Charity + Life, I am going back to a personal blog where I can share my favorite things, and continue to shine a light on nonprofits, and cause marketing campaigns to inspire others to give as they live.
