Re-Cap: VIP St. Patty's Day Party


On Friday, March 17, VIP Annual Members, advocacy group representatives, sponsors and community partners gathered for an all-inclusive St. Patrick's Day Party at community arts center, Rhizome DC.

At check-in, VIP guests were greeted with gift bags containing NCF t-shirts and other treats. When the munchies hit, a spread from Nando's Peri-Peri along with some home baked goods kept everyone satisfied.

Although the night was chilly, folks stayed warm by the fire pit and gathered under the big top for beer, whiskey, and - of course - Guinness. The party took over the entire arts center as well as the outdoor lot adjacent. While inside the house, guests enjoyed product demonstrations and samples from Get Hemp Butter, Southeastern Roastery and Hemp Kettle Tea. Big thanks to our friends at Event Rentals DC for making the big top tent happen!

At the end of the night, old friends parted ways and new acquaintances exchanged information to stay in touch.
