2017 Chili Cook Off

Thank you for making the 2017 Chili Cook Off a huge success! We were able to raise $2,050 for the Del Ray Gateway Project.


The Del Ray Citizens Association and the Del Ray Business Association have joined efforts to help rebuild a home in Del Ray for National Rebuilding Day! Rebuilding Together Alexandria organizes volunteers to repair and rehabilitate homes free of charge for those in need, including the elderly, persons with disabilities, military veterans and families with children. On April 29th, more than 10,000 individuals across the country will be helping to rebuild homes in their communities.

We are looking for 15-20 volunteers to assist us with the home repair in Del Ray on Saturday, April 29th from 7:30am-5pm. All skill levels welcome.


Also, don't forget to check out our fundraising event on April 1st: Raise a Glass to Raise the Roof Bar Crawl in Del Ray.
