Bethesda residents to participate in capitalcharity event

August 4, 2013 by  

Families from Bethesda are encouraged to demonstrate their support for student athletes and non-profit organizations by attending an event in nearby Washington, D.C.

In mid-August, the ColorMob Music and Giving Festival will be taking place at Freedom Plaza. The need for banner printing is most likely on the rise as participating parties prepare to set up informational booths on the big day.

The festival is affiliated with the ‘I Am NATION’ campaign. The high school students who have joined this program share a passion for both sports and community service. They have already collected over 100 bags of clothing and prepared meals for the needy.

On the day of the event, the students will join forces with more than 40 charity groups and businesses to collect donations from the public. Some of the funds and items donated will help promote education and better sanitation in impoverished African nations. Attendees are urged to bring non-perishable food and gently-used books, toys, and clothes to the festival.

Those who arrive at Freedom Plaza are encouraged to wear red, white, or blue. They will enjoy live entertainment from a DJ, as well as a ‘battle of the bands’. They will also be able to participate in carnival games and compete for cash giveaways.

The ColorMob Music and Giving Festival is scheduled for Saturday, August 17. It will be free to attend and run from 12:00 pm until 10:00 pm.

Freedom Plaza is located on Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest, close to 14th Street.
