Some 400 people turned out for CHGM’s third annual “Sip and Savor” fund raiser Saturday night at Eastern Market, celebrating the non-profit’s 50th year of operation.  The organization is dedicated to meeting the needs of thousands of individuals and families at risk of or experiencing homelessness on Capitol Hill and across the city.  24 food and drink donors with Capitol Hill connections provided an eclectic menu and “Sciatic Verve” the music.

The activities included a long line of food vendors stretching the length of the Farmers’ Shed outside the Market.
