RED TiE DC
RED TiE DC was created by The A’s Founder, Abla Doku. Her overarching goal is to hold an event five times a year together with an end of year showcase to spotlight, support and help provide funding to non-profit and charitable organizations in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. The networking for a cause will allow attendees to connect, build their business or profession, support a great cause, all while having a great time. Doku has worked with non-profits as a marketer and fundraiser and has learned first-hand the difficulties non-profit endure. She realizes to hire professional fundraisers to raise funds needed to support charitable organizations is a difficult endeavor. With a desire to help others succeed, she founded her own way to help her community locally and nationally. “Our goal is to help where help is undeniably needed so organizations can gain access to funds as well as build their base without the overhead. We realize the need that is out there and without the financial assistance people will be affected every day,” states Doku. The A is a boutique event design, planning, and staffing company located in McLean, Virginia specializing in corporate special events, social affairs, fashion shows, launches and galas.
