CASA Crestwood is an annual neighborhood tour of homes raising funds for the prevention of homelessness in DC. Less than a mile from Petworth, see inside six eye-candy homes and one spectacular church and raise funds to help upend the housing crisis.
Once a year, CASA Crestwood offers neighbors the opportunity to go inside homes they have seen and might have wondered about. Every home has a story, a place in time, and a heart. CASA tells these stories on Sunday, October 27th, 2-5pm. Register for the event on ThriveDC.
This year we’re offering a feature: Mi CASA es tu CASA! This philanthropic experience / party takes place in one of the most talked about homes in Crestwood. Join us one hour prior to the start of CASA to sip our custom kraft CASA cocktail, devour delectables prepared by Equinox restaurant and former WAPO deputy food editor Bonnie Benwick. Take a private tour and listen to Thrive DC Executive Director and Crestwood native Alicia Horton speak about the important work of Thrive DC.
Your ticket includes all homes on the tour plus this magnificent bonus home! Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and $50 for the bonus house/party.
Bring your entourage or come alone, but know that your footsteps unlock homes for those without.
