TVD Ticket Giveaway: Sound Bites, a Benefit for D.C. Central Kitchen at the Ronald Reagan Building, 5/4

After a long and abnormally cold winter, Spring has finally arrived. What better way to enjoy the warmer weather than with food, drinks, and good music?

Enter DC’s Sound Bites. The music fest previously hosted at the 9:30 Club has been relocated to the Ronald Reagan Building this year. The event features food and drink samples from over 25 restaurants, a Bar Battle between mixologists and, of course, music. Playing at this year’s Sound Bites are eclectic singer-songwriter Billy Thompson and his band, the eight-piece brass band Black Masala, The Get Down’s Saturday DJ Harry Hotter and band Ingleside Collective.

Sound Bites takes place on Sunday, 5/4, from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. Event tickets have already been on sale, but if you haven’t purchased tickets yet, we’re giving a pair away!

All proceeds from Sound Bites all go benefit the D.C. Central Kitchen. The organization celebrates its 25th year of providing food for low-income families and school systems, teaching culinary arts to people seeking better or new opportunities, and rebuilding urban food systems.

In the spirit of giving back to your local communities, enter to win tickets to this year’s Sound Bites by naming in the comments below another of your favorite charitable organizations doing wonderful work in your local area.

A winner will be chosen one week from today, 4/30! Tickets are still available for purchase.

    Awesome concept! In my local area(and where I work, actually!) The New York City Rescue Mission is doing amazing work both meeting the physical needs of the homeless population as well as running a Residential Rehabilitation/Recovery program for 30(soon to be 60 this summer!) men to help them get off the streets, reunite with their families, and reintegrate into society. Come check us out, and man do I hope I win these tickets for my wife and I. We love Black Masala!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win tickets!

    Another amazing organization operating in DC is Martha’s Table. Martha’s Table is actively involved across the District to meet the core needs of all people: education, nutrition, clothing, and family support programs. I’m most actively involved in volunteering with Martha’s Outfitters, a clothing operation where everyone can shop together and choose items that they not only need, but also want. It’s a truly wonderful community to be a part of, for more information check out and sign up to volunteer and check it out!

    I’d love to win tickets for so I can take a friend who will be visiting DC that weekend for her birthday. We both hosted radio shows in college and love the idea of music and food coming together, it’d be great to show her many of the great restaurants DC has to offer all at once!

    I am a strong supporter of Collective Action for Safe Spaces which is focused on the eradication of Street Harassment in DC. Too many people think Street Harassment or Cat Calling is a minor issue that women must contend with because it’s part of city living. But no one should ever feel threatened or unsafe and that is the point of this group. To educate on the dangers of street harassment and also allow women a forum to voice their concerns and find like minded allies! It is a phenomenal organization that is gaining traction and I’m proud to be a supporter!

    DC Central Kitchen is amazing & Soundbites sounds like a wonderful event! Another awesome DC organization is For Love of Children (FLOC) which provides free educational services beyond the classroom to help students succeed from first grade through college and career. Most volunteers work in the one on one neighborhood tutoring program, but I volunteer with the Scholars program aimed at setting 6-12 graders for success in high school and beyond. As a former DCPS teacher I love and miss working with 8th graders, and FLOC is a fabulous way to get involved in educational issues in DC!

    apologies if this posts twice, but my attempts to comment have mysteriously disappeared: One awesome DC organization is For Love of Children (FLOC). FLOC offers free educational services to help students succeed from first grade all the way through college and career. The largest component of FLOC is the 1-on-1 tutoring in reading in math for students in grades 1-12, but I’m involved with the Scholars Program. The Scholars program is for students in 6-12 grade and helps them successfully navigate high school, college, and into their career. Each week at program we have theme-based workshops relevant to each grade level, homework help, individual advising, and offer assistance with the high school/college application process. As a former DCPS middle school teacher I love that FLOC gives me the opportunity to stay connected with what is happening in education in DC and work with 8th graders on a weekly basis. Fun fact: DC Central Kitchen is fabulous and provides the healthy snack offered to Scholars at program – thanks for your support DC CK & for the opportunity to attend Soundbites!
