Banding Together

Banding Together is an annual battle of the bands fundraising event pitting members of D.C.’s legal community in competition to inspire the audience to donate to their favorite act. The money raised by Banding Together filters directly to goods and services for D.C.’s homeless community. The music goes from 7 to about midnight when the winner is crowned.

Banding Together is BACK – October 20th at the Black Cat!

After a two-year hiatus, Banding Together returns to raise the roof, and raise funds for Gifts for the Homeless. Bands sponsored by law firms as well as fans will take the stage starting around 7pm on October 20th to compete for the 2022 Banding Together trophy. Join us is celebrating the return of BT in 2022!

Gifts for the Homeless 2020 Video Fundraiser

 

Covid-19 may be keeping us apart, but Gifts for the Homeless (GFTH), an all-volunteer nonprofit, is very happy to announce that we are still banding together for the homeless in the DC metro area.  While our sole annual fundraising event, Banding Together: Battle of the Bands, has been postponed, we hope all of you – our friends and supporters – will enjoy our new video showcasing the talents of a number of the musicians who participated in last year’s concert.

GFTH is an all-volunteer nonprofit on the front lines during the coronavirus pandemic.  We are supporting 76 shelters, soup kitchens and transitional housing facilities which, in turn, provide aid and assistance to homeless men, women and children – a population among the hardest hit by the pandemic. 

But we cannot continue our work to help the homeless without your help.  PLEASE MAKE A DONATION TODAY TO GIFTS FOR THE HOMELESS.  YOUR DONATION WILL ENABLE US TO PROVIDE DESPERATELY NEEDED WARM CLOTHING AND BLANKETS TO THE HOMELESS THIS WINTER.  AND REMEMBER, GFTH USES 100% OF PUBLIC DONATIONS TO PURCHASE THESE ITEMS.
