And the Winners Are…

Last Friday we pulled out our sequined best and strut the red carpet at the First Annual Hilly Awards hosted by CHAMPS, Capitol Hill’s Chamber of Commerce. Not only were the Hilly’s CHAMPS annual fundraiser but also an event focused on bringing the community together for one night to celebrate what makes Capitol Hill a great place to live and work.

And in true Hill style – it was a great party! By 9 pm the first award was ready to be handed out and to the BID’s humble surprise we received the Community Service Award! It is an honor, and we thank everyone on Capitol Hill for making what we do enjoyable and worth it every day! But enough about us, here is what you really want to see:
