Friday: Fundraiser, Fish Vases & Careers in Catvocacy

We'll start your Friday run of opportunities and amusements by telling you what you should be doing next Friday, July 15: attending the Friends of the Tune Inn fundraiser (3:00-10:00 pm at the nearby American Legion Post 8) – auctions, raffles, and live music (+ plenty of beer, we imagine) support the staff of this Capitol Hill institution while repairs are underway following a recent fire. Great time + worthy cause = must attend.

Henry Jackson Foundation Uniformed Services University of Health SciencesSpecial Assistant, Office of the President

Tired of your usual bike/hike/jog route? Check out the 50 state compendium of trail options – including several nearby; use DC, MD & VA links – courtesy of the Rails to Trails Alliance. And while you’re at it, you might as well check out this fine Vice President, Development & Communications (pdf) opportunity – search managed by Dewey & Kaye – apply by July 29. Multiple Fall 2011 Internships also noted.

Support the fine work of the Maryland Institute College of Art and production of scary-looking fish vases with topical titles – as Senior Major Gifts Officer or Director of Marketing – also available, but vintage 6/2/11, is Assistant Director of Public Relations. All positions located in Baltimore, MD. And check out more works from MICA students and alumni.

Just as we noted a few weeks ago, this Vice President for Development (scroll down) slot with the National Building Museum still shows a June 17 expiration date. But wait – per this listing from the Chronicle of Philanthropy, the deadline looks to have been extended to July 11.
