The needs of a modern tourist epicenter with such a celebrated past are great. Help us raise the funds required to meet this challenge.

WPMS Social Sipper: Meet Your Woodley Park Business Leaders!

Did you know?


  •  Roi Barnard opened Salon Roi 50 years ago(!) and is the man who gave us the Marilyn Monroe mural almost 40 years ago this year (see banner above)!
  • Rev. Jadon Hartsuff, rector of All Souls Episcopal Church, led the effort to make Woodley Park home of the first-in-history inclusive all-girl troop of Boy Scouts of America (BSA) this year!
  • Gina Schaefer, owner of Ace Hardware, created her company from scratch to what now employs over 260 people from Baltimore to Virginia. Her pace (she's a tornado inside a hurricane!), work ethic, and emphasis on women's empowerment through boards and programs set a benchmark for entrepreneurs.


With over 70 businesses in Woodley Park, these are just some of the leaders you'll meet as you mingle with complimentary wine and food graciously provided by Open City! We've designed this event to ensure easy introductions and lasting friendships.
