Havana Nights

by Lisa, October 20, 2017

On October 28, the Arlington Free Clinic will host it’s annual benefit gala.  We love to support a good cause, and we love an excuse to party too, so in support of this year’s Cuban-themed gala, we got together with our client (and friend) Tracy to create a Cuba-inspired bar cart to auction off at the gala.  To pull the bar cart together, we hosted a happy hour last week with all of our friendly neighborhood clinic supporters. Folks came out to mingle, enjoy some Cuban delicacies, drink a cocktail or two, and donate money for a great cause.  Come on inside and join the party!

Get this awesome bar cart and support the Arlington Free Clinic!
