@Pelonkey’s @DJCharity Spins for @STKWashDC’s #UnmiSTKable Party at #Intermix

Pelonkey‘s lovely DJ Charity performed for an in-store event at Intermix, a high-end clothing shop in Georgetown. Featuring the sneak preview of the brand new STK steak house and lounge in DuPont, the event featured high-end cocktails and fanciful appetizers to tantalize DC’s chic fashionistas to come out. DJ Charity spun some awesome beats for the ladies and gents, all coming to find out exactly what the scoop was with STK and to do some fabulous shopping at Intermix. Thank you, Steve Vansickle, for the awesome photo of DJ Charity below!

Charity at Intermix

Event hosts Fran Holuba, Anchyi Wei, Kelly Collis, and Megan Salvaggio presented a fabulous cocktail party inside the store, offering all insight to the new attitude STK would bring to DuPont dining starting Arpil 24th. Charity enjoyed playing girly and bright tunes, mixing in high-energy dance to get the shoppers in the party mood, especially since 10% of all sales purchases from Intermix went to benefit UNICEF.
