Right now you can take a minute and help a precious Georgetown asset get $100,000 towards its upkeep and maintenance. American Express is running a competition right now between dozens of historic sites around DC. The site that receives the most votes by the end will win the cash. Dumbarton Oaks Park is the sole Georgetown entrant.
While there’s something tawdry about pitting worthy but needy historic sites against each other for cash, we might as well play along.
So go here, register, and vote for Dumbarton Oaks Park! You can vote once a day, so try to work it into your daily schedule.
