September 11th, 2016

Fundraiser Dinner – Turkish Festival
Event on 2016-09-22 19:00:00
The American-Turkish Association of Washington D.C. is proud to present the 14th Annual Turkish Festival, offering a day of free activities including dance, music, cuisine, fashion and arts & crafts. Every year, the festival draws tens of thousands of Washingtonians to the streets to enjoy delicious Turkish food and traditional Turkish coffee, to browse and shop at the Turkish Bazaar, and to watch mesmerizing stage performances. This year, once again festival goers will have the opportunity to journey from Washington D.C. to Turkey through experiencing Turkey’s rich cultural history, its culinary delights, and a variety of live Turkish music and engaging folk dance performances. The festival will also reach beyond Turkey’s borders featuring the rich cultural presence of the Balkans, Central Asia, and the Middle East. The Turkish Festival is a community event. It is organized, delivered, and financed by the Turkish American community and businesses in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area. Each year, ATA-DC’s Festival Committee works hard to develop a more attractive event so as to increase the number of visitors and thus, to more fully accomplish our event's mission. Over the years, these efforts have paid off, and the festival now has more artists, more food vendors, and more retail vendors than in previous years. In 2009, for the first time ever, the Festival received a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities.As ATA-DC is preparing for the 11th Annual Washington, DC Turkish Festival, they are proud that this exciting, colorful, and rich event has become a DC tradition that contributes to the city’s ethnic, cultural and religious diversity For more information on Turkish Festival, check out their website at

DC Loves Dilla – 9th Annual Tribute and Fundraiser (2014)

A few nice Washington Radio images I found:

Some pictures taken at the DC Loves Dilla – 9th Annual Tribute and Fundraiser Concert held at the Howard Theatre in Washington, DC on Thusday, July 17, 2014 by Mary Nichols (DJ Fusion of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast).

James “J Dilla” Yancey was a GRAMMY award-winning producer who inspired millions with his music including artist like Common, Raekwon, Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and many many more. On February 10, 2006 just three days after his 32nd birthday, J Dilla passed away after a long time of suffering with Lupus.

Cultural Curator Munch Joseph and HedRush Music created the DC Loves Dilla movement as a way to celebrate J Dilla and honor his career works. "Carrying on the musical legacy of J Dilla for the 9th year and counting is something HedRush and myself look forward to. Personally, it’s my way of paying homage to a great creator as well as doing our part to continually add balance to urban music. Dilla’s music accomplishes that on many levels," says Munch Joseph when asked the motivation behind the Tribute Concert ad Fundraiser.

All pictures taken with a Sony A58 camera with various lenses.

Help Our Home Fundraiser

July 21st, 2013

Help Our Home Fundraiser
Event on 2013-10-04 17:00:00

“Help Our Home” Fundraiser To Support Mid-Shore’s Domestic Violence Shelter


The Mid-Shore Council on Family Violence (MSCFV) is seeking sponsors for a fundraiser on October 4, 2013 from 5-7:30 pm in support of its Domestic Violence Shelter. The “Help Our Home” event will be held at The River House Pavilion, 28449 Clubhouse Drive, Easton, MD 21601. Tickets for the event cost per person and can be purchased in advance.   


The Keynote Speaker will be Mildred D. Muhammad. Mildred is a domestic violence survivor with a story to tell the world. Many know her first and foremost by her former husband,– the convicted and now executed DC sniper who terrorized the Washington DC metro region in late 2002. However, many are not aware that the reasons for the horrific attacks on innocent women, children and men in the DC Metro area, originated from John Allen Muhammad’s stalking and the control tactics he used on Mildred, his former wife, whom he sought to find and kill before, during and after the divorce.   Mildred is the Founder/Executive Director of After the Trauma, Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance to domestic violence survivors by providing mentoring, education and transportation programs. The organization creates ways to help survivors face their next day, and an even greater need to rebuild their lives.


“Help Our Home” supporters will have an opportunity to select fundraising goals they want to support from among such things as providing a bed or meals for one person in the shelter for a year, funding the hotline for a year, or providing a bed and food for one child in the shelter for a year. All donations are tax deductible. The “Help Our Home” Planning Committee members are board members: John Evans, Jamie Merida, Carol Parlett, Katie Pittsinger and Christina Wingate-Spence.


The Domestic Violence Shelter is one of the many services provided by MSCFV to domestic violence victims from Caroline, Talbot, Queen Anne’s, Dorchester and Kent Counties. The mission of MSCFV is to create healthy opportunities to break the cycle of domestic violence through intervention and prevention. MSCFV is a non-profit organization which has been providing services since 1980.

Kevin Clough, Executive Director at Philly Norml

Since its founding in 1970, NORML has provided a voice in the public policy debate for those Americans who oppose marijuana prohibition and favor an end to the practice of arresting marijuana smokers. A nonprofit public-interest advocacy group, NORML represents the interests of the tens of millions of Americans who smoke marijuana responsibly.

During the 1970s, NORML led the successful efforts to decriminalize minor marijuana offenses in 11 states and significantly lower marijuana penalties in all others.

Today, NORML continues to lead the fight to reform state and federal marijuana laws, whether by voter initiative or through the elected legislatures. NORML serves as an informational resource to the national media on marijuana-related stories, providing a perspective to offset the anti-marijuana propaganda from the government; lobbies state and federal legislators in support of reform legislation; publishes a regular newsletter; hosts, along with the NORML Foundation, an informative web site and an annual conference; and serves as the umbrella group for a national network of citizen-activists committed to ending marijuana prohibition and legalizing marijuana.

Our sister organization, the NORML Foundation sponsors public advertising campaigns to better educate the public about marijuana and alternatives to current marijuana policy; provides legal assistance and support to victims of the current laws; and undertakes relevant research.

The oldest and largest marijuana legalization organization in the country, NORML maintains a professional staff in Washington, DC, headed by Executive Director Allen St. Pierre, and a network of volunteer state and local NORML Chapters across the country.
