The Washington Winter Show

Founded in 2010 to raise significant funds to support health and education programs
for underserved and at-risk children and families

Founded in 1868, the Founders Board of St. John’s Community Services provides support to children with intellectual and developmental disabilities between the ages of 3 and 22 so that they may enjoy the benefits of an education with their nondisabled peers in the DC public schools and develop relationships and life skills as they mature.

The Bishop John T. Walker School for Boys is a not-for-profit, tuition-free school for boys in Southeast Washington, D.C. The school creates a nurturing and supportive environment where students mature academically, spiritually, socially, artistically, physically, and morally, and develop the self-confidence and character to make a positive impact on society.

Through this show, the WWS raises monies and public awareness on behalf of its chosen charities.

The WWS sponsors a three-day antiques show held annually at American University’s Katzen Arts Center.  Each year the Show has a theme that is interpreted through an educational loan exhibit and in one or two scholarly articles in the Show's Catalogue.  The Show features forty-five premiere antiques dealers from across the United States and Europe.

Each year the WWS selects local charities to be the beneficiaries of a significant portion of the monies raised during the Show.  All eligible charities must have 501(c)(3) status designated by the Internal Revenue Service.

THEARCTHEARC (Town Hall Education Arts & Recreation Campus) was established in 2005 and offers high quality and accessible cultural, health, educational and social services to the residents of Southeast Washington, DC through partnerships with outstanding local organizations.
