May 5, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


The Second Annual PLOOSHing for Autism Speaks Charity Soiree is set to be held on May 5th 2015 at The Graham Hotel on 1075 Thomas Jefferson Street NW, Washington DC 20007 from
seven until eleven o’clock in the evening. The event is being held to bring awareness, raise support, and funding for the Washington DC chapter of Autism Speaks. The event is being hosted by the DC based International Fashion Label PLOOSH Leather Toy Collection.

The event is set to be celebrity guest-hosted by Emmy Winning Actor and Producer Mr. Vincent De Paul. Likewise, the event will feature DC based international DJ Donald Syriani, with sponsors to include Devotion Vodka, Liana Lane boutique, JBC Events, C-Foundations Inc., with special thanks to The Graham Hotel. For sale will be limited edition Blue and White PLOOSH handbags with 50% of the proceeds being donated to Autism Speaks.

“The immense success of last year’s event really drove me to work on a bigger and more vibrant event for 2015. Autism is a condition that has affected those close to me and this is a way for me to utilize my fashion label and give back to a charity that does quite a bit of good as well as a way to promote its cause in the Washington DC area.” – Yuriy Zubarev Co-Founder PLOOSH LTC The Graham Hotel has long partnered with PLOOSH Leather Toy Collection to bring awareness to Autism Speaks and is the only hotel to carry the Limited Edition PLOOSH Blue and White handbag. The hotel will be providing its rooftop venue The Graham Observatory for the event and will have special PLOOSH Table Packages available for the evening.

“The idea of giving adults an opportunity to travel back to their childhood while expressing their current personal style is fantastic. Thinking back to our own child’s play with toys and the simplicity of those times is what we have created with PLOOSH. The concept it extremely fun, free spirited and still functional. This idea is why it is so important for PLOOSH to be involved in charity work and to use its name and foundation for a positive cause” – Sasha Iastremska, Founder PLOOSH LTC. “Playful Luxury” was introduced PLOOSH Leather Toy Collection to public during the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami in 2013. Since then, it has been covered in various media outlets such as, METROVELVET, Z!NK Magazine, Huff Post, NBC Miami, The TODAY Show, NBC Miami, BuzzFeed, Elements Magazine, Washington Life and others. PLOOSH Leather Toy Collection animal purses are handmade and decorated with Swarovski crystals. Each PLOOSH LTC handbag is a unique and one-of-akind luxury item. With an accessory concept that is clearly innovative and unique the PLOOSH LTC and PLOOSH DownTowN collections have already gotten major clout and captivated the likes of fans such as luxury retailer Henri Bendel, Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler, celebrity lifestyle guru Phillip Bloch, EDM Artist Tiesto, and other famous clientele.

This is a temporary measure that is reflective of the current business environment. This decision is not a result of illness or confirmed cases at the hotel.

We are in the process of supporting Team Members through the transition and notifying guests.
