How About a Christmas- Hanukkah Gift for Dumbarton Oaks Park?

Now it can be your turn to play Kris Kringle (or Hanukkah Harry) for a great, local cause: the Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy, which strives to protest, preserve and enhance our favorite park on R Street.

Here is a message from Rebecca Trafton, the conservancy's board president: "As we announced in October, Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy has been awarded a $50,000 chal- lenge gift from the National Park Foundation toward our Signature Project. By late October, we had raised $25,000 toward that challenge. Since then, we've raised an additional $6,270. Now, we need your help. In order to receive this generous award, we must raise an additional $18,730."

"We at the Dumbarton Oaks ParkConservancy are grateful for your generosity in helping save the trea- sure that is Dumbarton Oaks Park. Since Mildred and Robert Woods Bliss first donated the park to the American people in 1940, it has been a true gift. Designed as a private Garden of Eden, it is today a national park in the heart of Washington, a bucolic escape from city life."

Your gift will help ensure the strength and longevity of the Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy. Visit
