What’s In Store Tonight? Vegan Deliciousness!

Can you say “yum?”

Our 5th anniversary bash, “Lights, Camera (Collective) Action!” takes place tonight! We’re pulling out all the stops as we celebrate five years of working to make DC safe, including an open bar, live jazz, DJ tunes, desserts, a photobooth, live portraits, free massages, a silent auction and more. We’re especially pumped about the vegan snacks by Stephanie (Stef) Tarnowsky, owner of Stefwiches. Stef will be providing snacks to get your taste buds watering: Kale ‘caesar’ salad cups with toasted chickpeas, mini tacos two-ways (smoked black beans and spicy chix’n) and roasted red pepper & walnut spread with parsley chimichurri on crostini! YUM. Here’s what Stef has to say about CASS.

Stefwiches is a one-woman business that has been able to grow & thrive with the support and help of lots of awesome people. For me, food isn’t just about mindlessly consuming – food and cooking is creative; it’s something that can create common ground & bring people together; and, being vegan means it’s something I can do compassionately as well. That being said, the food I make is for everyone, vegan or not, because tasty, nourishing food is something everyone can get behind!

Being able to work this CASS event is really important because I hugely appreciate the work & education CASS provides for our community. As a woman, the fight against street harassment and assault is something I personally can identify with. Educating people on all sides about the implications of harassment and the importance of creating safe, comfortable spaces is something Stefwiches and myself are honored to be a part of.


P.S. Tickets to tonight’s bash are on track to sell out.
Get yours before it’s too late!
