RAFOM holiday party draws 150 low-income neighbors
This past Friday at Wilson School in Rosslyn, RAFOM, the Radner Ft. Myers Heights neighborhood civic association, held a holiday party that attracted 150 low-income neighbors. Low-income for this event did not mean does not drive a BMW. It meant kids from families that might struggle to be able to afford to give kids Christmas gifts. Arlington County police, disguised in festive holiday costumes, entertained the kids and distributed toys from the Marine Corps Toys for Tots Foundation. Domino's Pizza (Rosslyn store), Goody's, Il Radicchio, Liberty Tavern, Mr. Days, Mexicali Blues, Santa Fe Cafe and Toscana Grill (Courthouse Plaza) supplied food for the banquet. A platoon of neighborhood volunteers, ably led by Second Lieutenant Patricia Darneille, organized the event.
