Reserve the Date for a Great Night of Music, Dancing, Food, and Fun in Potomac

  • Jun 28, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is going to be a very special evening at a lovely private residence in Potomac, MD.  There will be something for everyone - from a performance by a small group of classical musicians to a DJ playing dance music for most of the evening.  Food and drink will be provided by our gracious hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Mir. 

Black Tie Optional

This event is sponsored by Beethoven Found, a 501(C)3 charitable organization.  A donation in the amount of your choice will be collected at the door. An appropriate amount would be $30 and up per person.

    As I mentioned before, David was at the door and thanked everyone. Nobody asked me to give more than what I intended ... I think the event was a success and if it can help others, even better! Thanks.

    I want to apologize to any attendees who felt "strong armed" at the door to give more than they wanted to give. I have heard that the donation takers were a little over zealous. Also, it appears they invited more people than the venue could handle. I won't sponsor any more events with this organization. Sorry!!

      Louise, i was not there so it's not fair for me to comment, you did things in good faith and you did your part as a reasonable human being, but with some of the organizations and i am not saying this particular one, there is always something nefarious although the intention and cause is suppose to be good. So do not beat yourself up. Cheers!

      I think most peoples who were there had a lot of fun! Great DJ and nice group of peoples!

    Louise, I enjoyed myself and thank you for your efforts. In regards to the donations, I was more than happy to make a donation to Wounded Warriors. I guess my only concern is based on questionable reputation of sponsor mentioned by some. But if money goes directly to cause I have no complaints. Thanks.

    • Louise A

      G, I know the work that this organization has done for several charitable organizations, in addition to Wounded Warrior Trust. I would not have associated myself with the group had that not been the case. Please rest assured that any donations will be put to good use.

    Louise. Thank you! The event was as described. I appreciate your efforts in getting the word out on this and the family's willingness to open up their home to strangers so as to raise money for the Beethoven Found.

    Really nice DJ and a some fun peoples! Danced all night (although never saw the guys who said they love dancing!) Had fun meeting new peoples. Also want to thank Louise, David and the host family (what a cute son!). Looking forward to the next event.

      I read your other comments, but can't find them now. In any way, I don't think you should comment on events you don't attend.

      Thanks, Eva. I agree!

    • Louise A

      Thank you, Steve. I'm hoping that unless anyone else has something nice to say that this is the end of this...believe it or not, a lot of energy went in to making this a successful event. I am strictly sticking to clubbing going forward, however.

    Met really nice people in relaxing atmosphere. Many thanks to the host.

    I was not aware of the $35 minimum. After receiving your e-mail suggesting a $30 donation, I told David to charge my credit card $35 but I am disappointed by your comments that peoples who did not give $50 would not be invited next time. I don't agree with other negative comments. I had a great time, didn't mind paying and didn't mind giving my info. However, it would be a good idea to make things clearer next time. In fact, when David gave me the invitation at the last event in Chevy Chase, he mentioned that it was a fundraiser "with no obligation". I was planning to donate anyways. Luckily, we can all decide who to give our money to ...Had fun dancing and meeting other nice peoples.

      I really feel bad about any miscommunication. I don't sponsor charity events. I was just saying that professional fund raisers do keep track of that sort of thing and it seems normal to me. I won't involve myself in these things in the future. I, personally, would rather stick pins in my eyes than ask people for money. I find it distasteful, but I do understand how it works. No more fund raisers, I promise!!

      Hi Noel! Are you getting a ride? If not, would you be able to come to the Van Ness Metro station around 6:30pm? Sorry, I have been out of touch. I only returned Wednesday night (with delay!). Looking forward to seeing you.

    Are the members of this group predominately married or single?

    June 20, 2014

    • Louise A

      There are both singles and married couples; but, I think the majority of members are actually single.

    What is the dress code?

    June 20, 2014

    • Louise A

      It is black tie optional. Basically, this means you should wear anything from a suit to a tuxedo. I don't think you will see many tuxedos at the event. Since it is summer, you could even get by without a suit and just wear a shirt and tie.

      June 20, 2014

    Music from classical to a dj how can we say I can not make it...just come

    I would love to go. What will the dress code be?

    April 28, 2014

    • Louise A

      Black Tie optional means you can go formal if you want. A cocktail dress for a woman or a suit and tie for a man would be appropriate.

    Love to dance
