Tickets are on sale for The 7th Annual Magic & Miracles benefit, “The Future is Bright,” to be held Thursday, December 4, 2014 at The Atlas Performing Arts Center on H Street, NE, from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.

$65 for individual ticket

Two tickets for $100 (Early Bird Special!)

Join us in celebrating the magic of opportunity and the miracle of the human spirit with WAMU 88.5 Talk Show Host Kojo Nnamdi as Master of Ceremonies. There will be a cocktail reception with delicious food from top local restaurants, a silent auction, live music and a special presentation.

The theme for the 7th “Magic & Miracles” is “The Future Is Bright” because we’re experiencing a growth spurt like none we’ve had before. We just won a service contract with the Capitol Riverfront BID and are hoping to secure  more contracts in the next few months. The great thing about these contracts is that all employees are full time- starting at $13/hour – with fully-paid benefits including 401k matching up to 4%! This year’s fundraiser is heavily focused on raising funds to provide supportive services to our new “men in blue.”  

Tickets can be purchased at

AmazonSmileRWWThese days, nearly everyone shops on, so why not help support Ready, Willing & Working at the same time?

Ready, Willing & Working (RWW) is a 501(c)3 non profit organization started by the Capitol Hill BID in 2008 to empower men to break the cycles of homelessness, welfare dependency and criminal recidivism through a paid-work rehabilitation program offering holistic programs and supportive services that allow individuals to achieve permanent self-sufficiency. The “men in blue” you see on Capitol Hill everyday are all participants in the RWW program.

By clicking the button above, 0.5% of the purchases you make from will help support support RWW. Every little bit helps! Every .5% makes a difference in the work we do to end homelessness here in Washington, DC.
