The Advoc8te had the pleasure of attending the ACC's annual boat ride this past Saturday and it was amazing! So many people came out in support of this wonderful organization that is about bringing community and business opportunities together. Council members Marion Barry, Michael Brown, Vincent Orange, Muriel Bowser and Tommy Wells were in attendance as well as Mayor Vincent Gray.

Not only was it a great event and fundraising opportunity for the Anacostia Coordinating Council but it was also Phil Pannell's birthday! Is there anyone who works harder for Anacostia and Ward 8 than Phil?!

Including pictures from the event. Unfortunately there was so much going on that both of my phones died before the end of the event so I don't have any pictures after the program. :( Be sure to not miss out on next year's boat ride -- get your tickets early! You can also make a donation to the Anacostia Coordinating Council today to help support them on their projects --- like the soon to be announced Ward 8 Community Choir!

Happy Birthday Phil!
