Unofficial Gazette
On Wednesday, December 5, the PTOS sponsored a happy hour at the Crystal City Sports Pub for the purpose of honoring organizations that aided in the September 11th Pentagon relief efforts. There were several guests of honor, including representatives from the Arlington County Chapter of the Red Cross, Versar, and Marymount University. According to Jeanne Mitchell and Becky Huber of the Red Cross, numerous organizations worked with the Red Cross in the relief efforts, including Sheraton, Costco (warehouse space), Versar (respirators used by rescue workers), Marymount University (food services), and McDonald’s. Ms. Mitchell and Ms. Huber also expressed their gratitude at having received over $7,000, which was raised at a previous PTOS-sponsored happy hour on October 11th. Near the end of the evening, the Red Cross representatives awarded several certificates of appreciation, recipients of which included: the PTOS, the Crystal City Sports Pub, and Mike Cuff. The PTOS and the Sports Pub also received a special mention in the “Welcome New Supporters” section in the latest edition of CrossRoads, the newsletter of the Arlington County Chapter of the Red Cross. The evening concluded with a presentation by the PTOS of a check for $2,000 to the Arlington County Chapter of the Red Cross. The PTOS salutes all the organizations involved in the September 11th relief efforts, and also thanks all those that have supported these organizations through attendance at these events.
