The Alexandria Seaport Foundation’s signature annual event is Wine on the Water (WOW), which takes place every September. The purpose of WOW is to raise awareness of the Alexandria Seaport Foundation’s (ASF) impact on the Apprentices whom we serve and the DMV community where we operate. It is our signature annual event and we invite you to join the planning committee to expand its impact.
The event honors a specific individual(s) or organization(s) who have made or are making a significant difference in the life of ASF Apprentices. The 2023 event honors Alexandria Mayor Justin Wilson for his two decades of support of our Apprentices and the Seaport Foundation.
