The Guest List:
ARLINGTON, Va. -- Getting a jump start on this year’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October), the entire 94.7 Fresh FM family bandied together to host the station’s second annual ‘Breast Cancer Bites’ fundraiser on Sunday afternoon.

Held inside one of the glitzy ballrooms on the upper level of the Renaissance Arlington Capital View hotel, the three hour food fest invited hundreds of Washingtonians to dig into a scrumptious buffet featuring dishes from some of the city’s finest restaurants.

And with Chef Scott Drewno from top-rated Wolfgang Puck’s ‘the source’ serving as this year’s Chef Chair, the culinary talent on display from his friends and colleagues was indeed impressive.

Bar Pilar, Bibiana, Birch & Barley, BLT Steak, Carmine's, Cork, Equinox, Estadio, Graffiato, Peacock Cafe, Rogue 24, Georgetown Cupcake, PAUL Bakery, Pinkberry, Ripple, Eddy Bar, Quench in Rockville, Slate Wine Bar – the list of participating hospitality establishments read like the Washingtonian Top 100 standings.

Some of the eateries in attendance hadn’t even opened yet, such as Chef Victor Albisu ’s hotly anticipated Falls Church restaurant Taco Bamba or ‘Frosting Queen’ Kimberly Robinson’s Makin’ Whoopie 14th Street dessert destination.

Rounding out the all-star team was Drewno’s fellow award-winning friends Chef Eric Ziebold from CityZen and Sou’Wester fame and Chef Adam Sobel of Georgetown powerspot Bourbon Steak.

With Breast Cancer Bites being first and foremost a music-driven fundraiser, the Fresh FM family had invited well-liked singer/songwriter Eric Hutchinson to headline Sunday’s event.

And having toured with everyone from OneRepublic to Jason Mraz to Kelly Clarkson, the Montgomery County native quickly found himself at ease with the gathered crowd as he rotated between songs from his various albums – even stopping mid-show to accommodate audience requests.

Like last year’s inaugural fundraiser, proceeds from this year’s event benefited the George Washington University Mobile Mammography Unit, which targets some of the most underserved communities in the D.C. area to provide screenings and prevention tools for women who would otherwise not receive mammograms.

Steps? Fighting cancer one bite at a time.
