Washington elite gathered for a festive evening of creative cocktails, live painting, and music
On May 19, Todd Hitt’s Kiddar Capital hosted Kiddar After Hours at the Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown. Mr. Hitt, noted benefactor of the arts in the region, held the event to highlight many of the creative organizations he has championed over the past year, including The Phillips Collection, The Creative Coalition, Arts and Humanities school programs through the Falls Church Education Foundation, Workhouse Arts Center, Creative Cauldron, McLean Project for the Arts, and Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts.
“Giving back to the community is part of good business and good citizenship. I’m honored to support these amazing organizations,” said Hitt.
A diverse crowd of 300 plus people attended the event, which featured DC’s own Maggie O’Neill onsite painting a pop impressionistic Lady Liberty. Additional art by O’Neill and Dominique Fierro was displayed around the room. Guests mingled with gold-painted models and enjoyed music by DJ Dino (aka Violetta Mareklou), art-inspired cocktails, and hand-rolled Dominican cigars. The bars were stocked with Hibiki and Yamazaki whiskeys and Pappy Van Winkle 23 Year Family Reserve.
Spotted at the event were Katrina Campin, a Trump surrogate and finalist on The Apprentice Season 1, Washington Redskins Ziggy Hood and Maurice Harris, and Grant Paulsen from The FAN 106.7
