    ABOUT 1 MILLION CUPS

    1 Million Cups (1MC) is a simple way to engage entrepreneurs in communities around the world. Each week, the 1MC program offers two local entrepreneurs an opportunity to present their startups to a diverse audience of mentors, advisors, and entrepreneurs.

    Presenters prepare a 6 minute educational presentation and engage in 20 minutes of feedback and questioning after they present. Entrepreneurs gain insight into possible ways they can improve their businesses, gather realtime feedback, connect with a community that truly cares about their progress, and walk away feeling like they have advanced their business. The audience also learns a great deal from the presentations. Whether this is through passively listening or deeply engaging with the entrepreneurs, there is much to learn every week from these dynamic and diverse communities.

    The program takes place every Wednesday morning from 8:30-10:00am in locations all around the country. The Washington, D.C. Chapter meets at 1776 DC weekly.

  • It's back! Lee-Fendall House's much-anticipated annual speakeasy fundraiser returns for the third year - and it's better than ever. 

    On Saturday, September 22nd, we invite you to join us for Sips & Secrets: A Speakeasy Night, to support Lee-Fendall House’s efforts to interpret nearly 200 years of local, state, and national history through stories of the individuals who lived and worked on the property from 1785 to 1969.

    The event celebrates the house's Prohibition-era history, when we were home to Alexandria's liquor wholesalers, and all proceeds will fund much-needed architectural repairs and stabilization for our historic 233-year-old foundations.

    • Enjoy 1920s-style drinks as we raise a glass to the Downham family, who once made Lee-Fendall their home as prominent Alexandria liquor dealers - until Prohibition came to town.

    • Dance the night away to some great jazz and ragtime, and brush up on your skills to enter our Charleston contest.

    • Show up in your best flapper or mobster style and win a prize for the best 1920s costume.

    • And more - keep an eye on our Facebook page as plans take shape!

    General admission tickets include three drink tickets for cocktails, wine, or beer, heavy hors d'oeuvres and dessert, and all the speakeasy fun you can handle! New this year is a general admission price for young professionals (ages 21-30; all guests must be 21 years or older to attend). 

    Interested in an insider's look at Lee-Fendall's Prohibition past? Join us at 6:30 PM for a VIP pre-reception, including an exclusive liquor tasting and a tour of the house that focuses on how Prohibition changed the lives of the Downham family and other Alexandrians. Those holding current Lee-Fendall House Museum & Garden memberships may attend as VIPs for the price of general admission. 

    ************************

    Sponsorship opportunities are available for companies, organizations, or individuals interested in supporting Lee-Fendall House's mission; sponsor levels and benefits are outlined below. In-kind donations of items for our silent auction will also be accepted at the discretion of the event chairperson. To discuss sponsorship opportunities, please contact Megan Ritter at MRitter1776@gmail.com or (410) 259-9273.
