    • Reflections of a Revolutionary in Residence
      “Papi, am I a princess?” “Yes, Anabella, you are. But we all are. In our country every one of us is a king or a princess,” I said, echoing the words of young Mr. Jefferson as played by Kurt Smith. She was right to ask: my family was feted like never before during my recent...Read More »
    • Join Us for the 4th of July!
      Seriously, is there a better place in America to celebrate the Fourth of July than Williamsburg?

This Independence Day combines great traditions with some fresh twists. It’s a...Read More »
    • The Word on DoG Street: Why We Need Your Help
      The word on DoG Street is that the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation receives state and federal taxpayer support and that an increase in that support could help solve the serious financial challenges facing the Foundation. If only that were true. CWF receives $0 annual financial support from either the state or federal government. Zero. We can’t...Read More » […]
    • An Anecdotal History–and Mythology–of the Stars and Stripes
      June 14 is Flag Day, marking the day in 1777 that the Second Continental Congress adopted the stars and stripes as America’s national banner. But it takes a bit more than the dawn’s early light to make out the origins of the flag. Still, it’s worth a try. Let’s start with the stripes. In 1769 some...Read More »
    • Did 18th-Century Tradespeople Worry about Machines Taking Their Jobs?
      The fear of machinery replacing jobs is a fear as old as… invention itself. While it is easy to consider this a modern anxiety – cashiers being replaced by automated checkouts, industry being hit by mechanized assembly lines – the concern goes back centuries. Becoming obsolete is a frightening prospect in any era. While sewing...Read More »

TribeFest for the Cure 2013

This year, the Mason School of Business at the College of William & Mary will host the Second Annual TribeFest for the Cure, a music festival benefitting the Tidewater affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  Last year’s inaugural event was attended by over 500 people and raised over $8,500 for breast cancer research, education, and advocacy – all while keeping the funds in the local area.

It is truly an event for the whole community, as attendees included students from the College’s graduate and undergraduate programs, as well as members of the Williamsburg community both young and old.  There is something for everyone at TribeFest: face painting and moon bounces for kids, educational materials for the curious, a silent auction and a wine auction for the philanthropically inclined, live local bands for audiophiles, beer for adults and the older college students, as well as local food for everyone.

If you want to get involved, you can do so in several ways.   First and foremost, you can – and should – come.  You can become a sponsor by donating a monetary amount.  You can also donate food or beverages, as our friends at Paul’s Deli and Williamsburg AleWerks did last year.  You can also donate wine for the wine auction or other items for our silent auction, including gift certificates and prize packages.  There is no maximum limit on donations – feel free to give as much as you or your company are able.  You will be supporting a great cause and will be able to see the immediate impact you have on your community.

TribeFest for the Cure will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2013  from 2:00-8:00pm in the courtyard of Miller Hall at the College of William & Mary.
