While most of us are focused on escaping our homes and looking forward to the reopening process our medical professionals are still hard at work. Our nurses, doctors, rehab therapist, respiratory therapist, techs, and social workers are still hard at work. Prior to the COVID crisis they had a tough job and throughout this crisis they have continued to show us how dedicated they are. Today DC Firefighters Burn Foundation along with DC Fire And EMS Chief Dean provided custom burn foundation masks along with lunch from Rocklands Barbeque and Grilling Company to the trauma, burn, Hematology/Oncology, respiratory therapy and rehab staff Children’s National Hospital and MedStar Washington Hospital Center. Thank you to all of our health care workers for all that you do for us. ... See MoreSee Less

Good news to all our wine drinking friends out there - The sale has been extended through the week. If you are looking to order a few extra bottles during quarantine, please consider our friends from Wines for Humanity, who donate to our silent auction each year!
For those who asked- all of their wines that we tried are good but we especially like the Black Shiraz and the Lobster Key Sauv Blanc!We've received a lot of queries about how to help the nurses, doctors and heroes at the hospitals we support. While the best way is to donate to the Foundation and note "COVID-19" in the donation space, we will be bringing you several deals and offers over the next few weeks, a percentage of sales will benefit the Foundation. We know not everyone can afford "extras" right now, but if you can, and are shopping, please consider some of our deals. Wines for Humanity provides us with great in-home tastings for silent auction prizes at our Night of the Market. THIS WEEKEND ONLY they are offering 40% wine (use code BIG40!) at a percentage of sales go to the Foundation. But please use this link: www.winesforhumanity.com/winetime ... See MoreSee Less

We recently surprised our friends in the burn, trauma and respiratory therapy teams at MedStar Washington Hospital Center with some Chic-fil-a lunch and Foundation reusable water bottles to keep them fed and fueled during this difficult time. These teams have always supported the Foundation and our firefighters in times of need and we hope to do the same during this global crisis. We also surprised them with some music from DCFD Emerald Society Pipes and Drums.
Thank you for all you do! Stay safe and stay strong, DC (and stay home!) ... See MoreSee Less

To some of us, this past month feels like a year. But it was just a few months ago that we were selling Christmas trees at The Salt Line to benefit the Foundation. Together, we raised more than $11K selling trees, wreaths and ornaments. We look forward to holding this fundraiser this winter AND supporting our restaurant partners when it is safe! ...

Due to COVID-19, we will unfortunately be canceling our 2020 Night at the Market Gala, originally scheduled for April 18, and postponing our annual bowling fundraiser to Wednesday, October 7 (it was originally scheduled for Wednesday, March 25).
While we are disappointed to have to cancel our biggest fundraiser of the year, public health - and the health of our friends, family, and first responders - is essential and top priority right now. We have been issuing refunds for the Gala - please give the money 10-14 business days to appear in your account. If you have questions, you can e-mail us at email@example.com. Thank you and stay safe! ... See MoreSee Less
