After over 50 years of existence, Americans for the Arts has become the most prominent non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of the arts in America. Actress and George Washington University alum Kerry Washington recently made an appearance at Sprinkles Cupcakes in Georgetown to meet and speak to fans in order to help garner funds for this organization. Despite the unseasonable cold and snow, my friend Jasmine Stovall and I decided to trek over to Georgetown to get a glimpse of our current institution’s alum.

We found Sprinkles packed with fans and avid supporters of the arts. After a worthwhile wait, we got close enough to meet and speak to Kerry Washington. When asked by a reporter why she decided to participate in an event such as this one, she expressed her appreciation of and gratefulness for the arts, and her desire to promote its prominence and continuity. She was excited to hear that we are currently students at her alma mater and thanked us venturing out to see her. Washington looked absolutely stunning in her red Michael Kors Dress.

Kerry Washington, the star of the ABC drama Scandal greeted and served fans at Sprinkles Cupcakes in Georgetown to raise funds for Americans for the Arts. All the proceeds from Sprinkles Red Velvet cupcakes purchased until November 6 will go towards Americans for the Arts. Sprinkles Cupcakes is located at 3015 M Street, NW.
