Advon Real Estate Hosts 7th Annual Heart + Pints Bazaar for Arlington Food Assistance Center

Heart + Pints Bazaar

Advon Real Estate and Green Drinks Arlington of Falls Church, VA, for the seventh year in a row has organized a benefit to inspire the community to think about local and free-trade artists while bringing awareness to a wonderful cause, the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). Gathering together local and free-trade artisans as well as makers and crafters for an evening to benefit the wonderful non-profit, AFAC, Advon Real Estate is hosting the 7th Annual Heart+Pints Bazaar on Thursday, March 23rd from 5pm-9pm.

This fantastic opportunity for our local artists to showcase their talents and contributions to sustainable efforts while being able to give back to the community — hence the donation to AFAC and an otherwise free event for the community is what the 7th Annual Heart+Pints Bazaar is all about. With such a successful event in the years past, we have added more local artisans and hope to arouse the senses with food, fun and creativity while bringing awareness to the AFAC’s ever present mission of feeding the hungry in our community — which happens to be a good portion of Arlington County residents who need extra help with food not just seasonally, but throughout the year.

The event will be held in the artist inspired Pallette 22 at 4053 Campbell Ave, Arlington, VA 22206 on Thursday, March 23rd from 5pm to 9pm. A non-perishable food item is recommended to gain entrance to the event and will directly benefit AFAC. Pallette 22 is generously donating a portion of the bar to AFAC and holding Happy Hour specials for the duration of this public event. Various local artisans will be proudly displaying their creations which include items ranging from fine art, fused glass, pottery, photography, jewelry to paintings. A silent auction to benefit AFAC will also be held during the event. Please bring cash or checks; as only a few vendors will accept credit cards. Entry can be gained with the suggested donation of a non-perishable food item and all proceeds from the silent auction sales, as well as the non-perishable food items will be donated to AFAC. Last year over 500 lbs of food were donated and $2,500 was raised for the program. Over the last seven years, over $17,000 has been raised across all charities highlighted at this event.

More about Advon Real Estate: Genevieve Concannon founded Advon with a focus on residential re-sale in Northern Virginia because she saw a need for focus. Real Estate agents can not be everything to everyone across all markets, and she also understands what it means to live in an area where the residential housing stock is older. With a hand selected, elite team of agents who understand new construction, sales and marketing and especially urban in-fill and new urbanism, Genevieve found the key to what Northern Virginia real estate needs.

Genevieve is also the co-founder of Green Drinks Arlington, the group who has hosted this event since its inception. As part of the international Green Drinks Organization, Green Drinks Arlington is a social and professional networking group for like-minded individuals who work in an environmentally conscious field. Green Drinks highlights sustainable venues around Arlington and host speakers who feature various discussions in the topics of environmental stewardship, sustainability, health, new policy and the energy efficiency. Genevieve Concannon and Marina Ospina are the founders of this Chapter of Green Drinks and coordinate and host all events at rotating venues around Arlington.

More about AFAC: AFAC is an incorporated 501©(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing supplemental groceries to Arlington residents who cannot afford to purchase sufficient food to meet their basic needs. They are run entirely by a volunteer Board of Directors, a staff of eighteen employees, and more than 400 volunteers from families, businesses and religious organizations. Mission: While their only mission is to feed the hungry, by relieving the food budget of our clients, they help prevent homelessness and allow their clients to make other necessary purchases without sacrificing their health, housing and nutritional needs.

Genevieve Concannon, Founder of Advon Real Estate has hosted this event for the past 7 years as a part of Green Drinks Arlington. She states, “Our neighbors in Arlington have truly come to enjoy the Heart+Pints Bazaar. I started this event out of love for a lost friend, who left the world too soon, and I wanted to spark love for her art and embody what community is about with an event that captures art and community. I think she would be proud.”

This lively, local event enables us to showcase local artisans from the Arlington area while bringing together community in a way that empowers the AFAC organization to gain awareness. Now, over the past seven years we have successfully brought attention to the AFAC organization that is local and a part of the community that we live, work and play in. Heart+Pints was born of a desire to bring about an inspiration in the community that even by doing a small part, we can still try to make a big difference- together. Heart+Pints is a low-key, fun way to give back what AFAC gives out daily; Tammy Bjorge, Sweet Root Village and I hope to accomplish great things again this year.” The 7th Annual Heart+Pints Bazaar will be held Rain or Shine Thursday, 3/23/16 from 5pm-9pm at Pallette 22 in Shirlington. Music, Art, Pints and community coming together all in one place.

Grey View, in the Wyatt Resident Artist Gallery, is an homage to “gray” and a snapshot of the artist’s process. Consisting of photographs, collage, and a site-specific installation, this show is an outgrowth of Rivas-Rogers’ visual investigations into places you see on your way to somewhere else.

On the main level, Crisis of Image features artists who seek equity in today’s saturated visual world by developing new methods related to the production of images.
