We have all participated in the ALS challenge and now it is time check out what is all about.  Meet the wonderful people that started it all.  Check out the deets below:


WHAT:          On Thursday, October 16, 2014, Bill Thoet and his partners in the newly formed NBP Group, LLC will host a grand opening party at the new Georgetown Piano Bar, located at 3287 M Street, NW, 20007.  The event is open to the public and there is no cover charge to enter and enjoy the world-class live entertainment from one of the area’s most recognized pianists, Hunter Lang, playing dueling pianos with guest pianist Bill Whitman.  Complimentary hors d’oeuvres will be served throughout the evening along with a cash bar.  100% of the proceeds from the sales of Samuel Adams ($6 each) and martinis like the Dean Martin, Grey Goose Vodka, Dry Vermouth and St. Germaine ($12 each) will go to the ALS Association –DC/MD/VA Chapter.  Thoet has served as chair of The ALS Association National Board of Trustees since February 2013. The ALS Association gained international attention this summer with its Ice Bucket Challenge. The purpose of this grand opening celebration is to celebrate the incredible impact the Ice Bucket Challenge has had on ALS. Guests are encouraged to bring along their IBC videos to share. Furthermore, Nancy and John Frates, who started this grass roots campaign on behalf of their son, Peter Frates, will also be in attendance.
