Amy Wilcox will perform at Arlington Community Foundation fundraiser on April 21.
Perhaps you've always wanted a ride in a WWII plane. Or maybe your fancy is a limousine trip and dinner at the Inn at Little Washington or a weekend stay at the Salamander Resort. "This is Us," the 17th year for the Arlington Community Foundation (ACF) fundraiser, will also offer a number of other exciting choices in their silent and live auctions on April 21 at the Ritz-Carlton in Pentagon City.
A surprise signature drink highlights the full bar beginning at 6 p.m. Move on to accompanying hors d'oeuvres and a buffet including Ali tuna, beef tenderloin and chicken and waffle entrees along with wine and beer. Dessert will follow accompanied by an open bar.
The performer for the evening is Arlington's Amy Wilcox who followed her passion for writing and performing songs from Atlanta's Music City, to a TV show and then a record deal in Los Angeles. She has evolved from country to classic rock with a theme of second chances. The release of her new album, “West,” is a diverse LP reflecting her musical journey.
Tickets are $300 and can be ordered at www.ARLCF.org
