Matt Feger is the UNICEF Tap Project City Coordinator in Washington, DC. He and the DC Tap Project Team report on their launch event which took place on March 20, 2010.

On Saturday night, the D.C. Tap Project Team hosted our Launch Event to kick off World Water Week. We must have had some good karma because the weather finally cooperated and helped us draw a great crowd. Friends, co-workers, volunteers, and some family members all came out in support of children around the world.

The folks at Local 16 were fantastic hosts. Not only did they provide great food (the hushpuppies were amazing) and a great atmosphere, they went above and beyond to make the event fun and memorable. Right before the doors opened, they even chipped in to help put Tap Project stickers on the plastic cups that would be used for the blue Tap Project drink special, which after much lively debate, we dubbed D.C. Tap Water.
