Charity Events

On December 10th, 2015, we teamed up with our Columbia Heights - Petworth Spots to thank the people who sacrifice their time giving back to the community. The staff at the Capital Area Food Bank was able to enjoy delicious bites from Acre 121, Lou's City Bar, Meridian Pint, Kangaroo Boxing Club, Eats Place, DC Reynolds, Walters, Chez Billy, The Pitch, and The Pinch.

On August 26th, we partnered with Nourish Now and 11 great Rockville restaurants for another Spotluck Potluck, this time benefitting Children's Inn at NIH. The Children's Inn is a place for patients and their families to stay while participating in pediatric research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical Center.

On April 17th, we partnered with Nourish Now for our second Spotluck Potluck. Each of our Bethesda Row Spots donated a tray of food for the Fisher House Foundation. Bethesda's Fisher House provides housing for families of soldiers hospitalized at Walter Reed.

Spotluck and Potomac Pizza partnered to provide lunch for Dreams for Kids DC and the Washington Redskins. Dreams for Kids DC is a non profit that provides life-changing activities that empower children with physical and developmental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their potential.

On July 24th, our 22 Arlington restaurants each donated food to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) for the Spotluck Potluck Initiative. AFAC has been providing food to people in need for over 25 years. They support 2,200 families each week with over 80,000 pounds of donated groceries.

Spotluck partnered up with our great Spots, Potomac Pizza, Martin's Tavern, and Fat Pete's to provide lunch for the Dreams for Kids DC Baseball Camp with players from the Washington Nationals & Georgetown University. Dreams for Kids DC is a non profit that provides life-changing activities that empower children with physical and developmental disabilities to unite with their peers and realize their potential.

It's not often an entire city teams up for a great cause. But, on January 27th, the Woodmont Triangle area of downtown Bethesda did an amazing thing. Working with the wonderful Nourish Now, our local restaurant partners all donated an incredible amount of fresh made meals to be delivered to the families of The Children's Inn at NIH.
