2022 Signature Event - “Créme de la Rouge”

The Fort Washington Alumnae Chapter will host its 2021-2022 Signature Event “Créme de la Rouge” on June 4, 2022.  This annual event raises funds to support our community development and scholarship programs in Southern Prince George’s County and Charles County, Maryland.  These programs range from youth mentoring activities, senior citizen programming, social action advocacy, physical and mental health awareness, COVID education and so much more!  In fact, since its chartering in 1990, DST-FWAC has awarded over $300,000 in academic scholarships.  This year’s event will be an afternoon to remember and an opportunity to support the community. 

This year’s theme will mirror the Diner en Blanc experience and promises to be an evening of elegance and glamour.  Guests dressed in white with a splash of red will dine at a table for two, providing their own food, beverage and table decor.  No alcoholic beverages will be allowed.

Guests are permitted to bring tents with the following guidelines:

  • Tent Size: 10 feet x 10 feet
  • Tent Covering Color: White
  • Sidewalls/Side panel enclosures are prohibited

Event Location 

Charles County Fairgrounds

8440 Fairground Rd, La Plata, MD 20646 

 
Guests must wear a mask, show proof of vaccination or negative Covid test at check-in.

We will be entertained by the legendary band Let It Flow, an R&B/Neo-Soul ensemble consisting of some of the Washington Metro area’s finest musicians and vocalists.  Let it Flow captivates audiences with a stirring mix of contemporary jazz, neo-soul, R&B, and hip-hop sprinkled with a few “old-school” classics.
