“It’s just fun. It’s a little bit different, and this year we are hoping it's all that more special because we are hosting it in a different area in South Arlington,” said Genevieve Concannon, one of the organizers.
Twelve local artists will be on hand selling goods for the Saturday event, sponsored by the Arlington chapter of Green Drinks and Sweet Root Village. Green Drinks is an international network of eco-conscious social clubs. Sweet Root Village is an Alexandria-based business that provides eco-friendly wedding services.
The event is from 2 to 5 p.m. at P. Brennan 's Irish Pub and Restaurant, 2910 Columbia Pike. Guests are asked to bring a non-perishable food item for AFAC. A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the group.
The local chapter of Green Drinks was started by Concannon and Maria Ospina three years ago and they’ve hosted a December fundraiser every year since. Typically, anywhere from 15 to 90 people attend occasional Green Drinks gatherings, with the December fundraiser the most popular among them.
