On December 5, 2015 the DC Famu Alumni chapter held its holiday party at the Edward C. Mazique Parent Child Center in Washington D.C. New and old faces gathered to engage in some good old fashioned fun, lots of laughs and some mixing and mingling. This festive event included music, beautiful poinsettias and a decorative Christmas tree. There were many tasty items on the menu including home-style chili and curry chicken just to name a few. One of the main highlights of the event was the gift giving and donations. Rattlers showed their support by giving gifts and monetary donations to benefit United Communities Against Poverty Shepherd’s Cove Emergency Shelter for Women & Children.
