It may be summer, but the Washington chapter of nonprofit Twelve Days of Christmas was in high gear putting together a “party with a purpose” for area school children. Its summer fete “La Fiesta del Sol” brought out more than 300 of Washington’s most influential African Americans and friends in support, raising $12,000 by the time the last margarita was poured at Hudson Restaurant.
