Hush Weekend returns for a 3rd Annual staging over the course of Memorial Day Weekend, May 24-27, 2018. Revelers from far and wide are set to descend upon the Nation’s Capital (and greater Metro area) for 5 fun events that span 4 days. Billed as a culturally-infused destination event, Hush Weekend showcases the vibes, energy and attractions of one of the hippest cities in the U.S., Washington, D.C., while entertaining the masses with incredible themed events. This year, Hush Weekend has proudly evolved into a “Party with a Purpose,” as they partner with Cupcake for a Cause, an effort spearheaded by Dr. Patrice Holden, to raise funds for Sickle Cell Disease and bring awareness to the painful illness, which primarily impacts people of African descent, including Dr. Holden.
Through her “This Chick’s Got Cake,” Dr. Holden will be on-site at select events over the Hush Weekend selling her signature, couture cupcakes for charity. Diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease at just 6 months old, Dr. Holden’s health has been a lifelong battle. Bringing awareness to Sickle Disease is additionally very personal to her, as she lost her 16-year old sister, father and grandfather to it. Dr. Holden serves as an advocate for Sickle Cell Disease, using the creative and enjoyable medium of cupcakes. The Hush Weekend team is pleased to provide Dr. Holden with its platform to enlighten patrons. Moreover, Hush Weekend will donate a portion of the weekend’s proceeds to “This Chick’s Got Cake.”
