CRAVE Bethesda Participates in Operation Warm Winter

Since we opened the tenth CRAVE location in the Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, MD, we’ve been welcomed into the Bethesda community with open arms. We’re beyond excited to continue to become involved in the community outside our four walls.


On Monday, January 19th, we teamed up with The District Insider  Danni Star from The Kane Show, Hot 99.5FM’s, Wilsons Leather, and the Westfield Montgomery to host Operation Warm Winter, a winter outerwear drive supporting homeless in the Washington, D.C. metro area.

Shoppers who made a donation of a new or gently used winter coat or other warm outerwear item were treated to CRAVE hors d’oeuvres, entertainment by DJ Bigg Slim, and a raffle courtesy of Wilsons Leather.  We featured a spread of caprese skewers, tuna tataki wontons, pork sliders and lamb meatballs for everyone to enjoy.

Over 200 warm winter items were donated and distributed to homeless men and women living near Lafayette Square, Franklin Square, and A-SPAN in Arlington. A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped make this event possible and to those who came out with donations in support a great cause!

We’re not all steaks and sushi. In fact, CRAVE has been a longtime advocate of supporting the communities we serve. From our CRAVE Cares program to pitching in where we can help, supporting our local community has been at the core of our mission. We take pride in our natural propensity to give back.

We love hosting nonprofit happy hours and partnering to raise donations. Contact us for more details!
