Washington, DC — August 29, 2023 — The Zinzi Christmas Party, a beloved holiday tradition in the Washington, DC area, is proud to announce a generous donation of $80,000 to local charities, Dr. Bear's Closet and St. Ann's Center for Women, Children, and Families. This contribution marks another remarkable milestone in the Zinzi Christmas Party's longstanding commitment to making a positive impact on the community.
For over 25 years, the Zinzi Christmas Party has been synonymous with goodwill, festive cheer, and charitable giving. What began as an intimate gathering hosted by the Zinzi family in Northern Virginia has evolved into a sold-out extravaganza held at The Anthem at the WHARF in Washington DC, attracting a diverse array of supporters.
One of the hallmark features of the Zinzi Christmas Party is its unwavering dedication to charitable causes. Over the last two decades, the event has raised over $1.5 million for numerous local and national charities, including Children's National Medical Center (Bear's Closet), St. Ann's Center for Children, Youth & Families, St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, and the Pentagon Assistance Fund (PAF), among others.
The Zinzi Christmas Party's growth and success are attributed to the collaborative efforts of sponsors, partners, co-hosts, local businesses, and individuals who have come together to support its mission. It has become the premier holiday event of DC's bar, restaurant, and nightclub industry.
The Zinzi Christmas Party's philanthropic endeavors extend beyond the event itself. Their work focuses on transforming the lives of vulnerable children and young people, providing them with counseling, fostering, local support, education, residential, and training services, empowering them to fulfill their potential.
Speaking on behalf of the Zinzi family, representatives from Dr. Bear’s Closet at Children’s National Medical Center and St. Ann’s Center for Women, Children & Families expressed their heartfelt gratitude to everyone who contributed to this year's success.
"The Zinzi Christmas Party would not be the success it is without the support of our partners, sponsors, hosts, participating bars, clubs, and restaurants," they emphasized.
Save the date for the Zinzi Christmas Party 2023, set to take place on December 17, 2023. Stay tuned for more details, which will be announced on the event's website and social media channels in the coming weeks.
