RAW gets political this evening as we make our way all the way across the country for a night of creativity and expression in the nation’s capital: Washington DC.  This showcase is helmed by the uber-capable Megan Collaso, and tonight is a little bitter-sweet because it will be the last showcase Megan directs for us, she is moving into a bigger role within RAW as our new Marketing Coordinator!  Be sure to throw a congratulations her way if you see her in there!
