    Support Our Troops and Wounded War Veterans with PTSD by Attending DC’s Hottest St. Patrick’s Day Party at Watershed Restaurant

    While it’s going to take more than the luck of the Irish to mend the “invisible wounds of war” for many of our U.S. servicemen, “power couple”, Chef Todd and Ellen Gray are hoping to at least provide some relief to some local DC military families by hosting a St. Patrick’s Day cocktail party at their acclaimed new restaurant, Watershed. Proceeds will benefit NOT ALONE, a local non-profit dedicated to reducing military suicide rates and increasing treatment of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
    The cocktail party at Watershed is not only designed to support the needs of our local troops, but also developed as a unique alternative for St. Paddy day party goers who are looking for a more hip and stylish celebration event, that’s outside of the typical pub scene.

    The event will be held at Watershed on Sat. March 17th at 6 pm. Tickets are $100.00 per person and includes open bar and signature Eastern Seaboard inspired cuisine. The restaurant is metro-accessible—Red Line metro stop: New York Avenue. Just visit NOT ALONE WATERSHED COCKTAIL PARTY, or contact Danielle Zopf at phone: (615) 243-7400 or email: danielle@notalone.com to get your tickets today.
