Save the Date: The 3rd Annual Magic & Miracles, benefiting Ready, Willing & Working


Save the Date for the 3rd Annual “Magic & Miracles” at The Ritz-Carlton, Washington, DC, on December 2nd from 6-9 p.m.

This year’s event promises to be fabulous and will feature WAMU’s Kojo Nnamdi as our guest host, and an introductory video from writer and producer Carl Kurlander (St. Elmo’s Fire, Saved by the Bell and My Tale of Two Cities) with words of support from several notable celebrities.

Ready, Willing & Working (RWW) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit corporation that empowers men to break the cycles of homelessness, welfare dependency and criminal recidivism through a residential, paid-work rehabilitation program offering holistic programs and supportive services that allow individuals to achieve permanent self-sufficiency.

This is a sister program to New York’s hugely successful “Ready, Willing & Able” (RWA) program which provides opportunities to the hardest to serve homeless population — single, able-bodied adults, the majority of whom have histories of incarceration and substance addiction. Over 67% of graduates from the RWA program remain employed, independently housed and drug-free. RWW is seeing similar successes for the District of Columbia’s homeless and formerly incarcerated.
