Bank of Georgetown was a proud sponsor of the 16th annual Taste of Georgetown food and wine festival, which took place on October 10. As in past years, the event was centered along Wisconsin Avenue in the heart of Georgetown. The bank has sponsored Taste of Georgetown since 2005.
Employees of the bank and their families volunteered their time to help with the event. Jon Higgins, vice president of commercial banking organized the bank’s sponsorship and involvement.
Nearly 10,000 people attended the event and approximately 30 of the capital’s finest restaurants showcased their exceptional cuisine and provided samples of their most renowned dishes. The event also featured wine and beer tastings, and a jazz performance from the Washington jazz club, Blues Alley.
The event benefitted the Georgetown Ministry Center’s (GMC) services and programs that assist homeless men and women. You can support the efforts of GMC directly at GeorgetownMinistryCenter.org or call (202) 338-8301.
