Enjoy a Guided Tour of DC to Benefit SOME

Sunday, October 5, 2014, Walk of the Town is offering a guided tour entitled “Monumental sTOURies” to benefit SOME. Led by licensed DC tour guide Tim Stewart, the tour will feature stops at the Lincoln Memorial, the Washington Monument, the World War II Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Constitution Gardens, Signer’s Island and more.

Reservations are not required. The tour itself is free, but donations are welcome – 100% of donations will go to SOME. The tour begins on 15th Street, NW, just steps from the northwest corner of the Commerce Department at the intersection of 15th Street (300 block) and Pennsylvania Avenue.

Hope Operas

Every year, Hope Operas brings together approximately 60 theatre artists to create five new works to raise money for worthy causes. This year, SOME is one of them!

The shows are presented in serial format: On the first night, the audience sees the first episode (10-15 minutes) of all five. A week later, they see the second episode, and so on. Audiences vote for their favorite show each evening–the show with the most votes raises the most money for its nonprofit.

Votes for “Magic Cupcakes,” written by Andrew Baughman and directed by Amy Baska, will benefit SOME. Performances will be held October 6, 13, 20, and 27 at 8:00pm at The Comedy Spot at Ballston Common Mall, located at 4238 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA.
