Miss A Columnist

Hannah Walker is a senior at Georgetown University, majoring in English and minoring in Japanese. This mostly means she can justify spending a lot of money on books and sushi. She grew up in New Jersey, which has instilled in her a love of Bruce Springsteen, strong opinions about pizza quality, and a complete inability to pump her own gas. A devotee of stories in all forms, she is an avid reader, tv- and movie-watcher, and playgoer. Hannah especially loves the arts in DC, from Artomatic to Opera at the Kennedy Center to street art in Adams Morgan. Hannah is happy to talk at length about any new books or movies, and jumps at any opportunity to cover cultural events. If you have a Washington, DC charity or cultural event, restaurant, boutique, spa, or salon you would like covered on Miss A, please contact Hannah at hannahrtwalker@gmail.com.

Luke’s Wings Homecoming At Reagan National Airport Honors Members Of The Armed Forces This Veteran’s Day

Dedicated to, among other things, providing travel planning and complimentary plane tickets to wounded military servicemen and women and their families so that they can be together as the warriors recover in military hospitals across the US, there’s no question that Luke’s Wings is a worthy cause, and one that could not be more timely.

This Friday the non-profit will join with American Airlines, MacNair Travel Management and Washington Life Magazine in hosting Homecoming, a black-tie cocktail reception and fundraising gala in honor of our military heroes, veterans and families. Appropriately for this organization that deals with flying members of the military and their families across the country, the gala will take place in Reagan National Airport’s Terminal A, with a stunning view of the runway through floor to ceiling glass windows. The evening will include an open bar, life music from RKO Combo, delicious food, and a silent auction.

All proceeds will benefit Luke’s Wings, and go towards plane tickets for wounded warriors and their families, so that they don’t have to spend the holidays or this Veteran’s Day alone. Come out for an amazing evening for a fantastic cause, and show your gratitude for these amazing men and women who have done so much for us.
