Manning Up at Hearts and Homes for Youth’s Inaugural Men’s Event

‘Manning up’ involved watching his car get swept away in a flood and trudging home through two miles of crazy weather last Thursday for restauranteur Vic Seested III. Despite the day’s discouraging events, the community leader was determined to be there for Hearts and Homes for Youth‘s inaugural Men’s Event at his Taste Gastropub in Olney.

Co-hosted by Seested, President & CEO of Hearts & Homes for Youth Rex Smith, former local footballer Clinton Portis, bespoke tailor Michael Andrews (Michael Andrews Bespoke), Editor-in-Chief of Bethesda Magazine Steve Hull, and actor Mathew Modine (though the last was sadly not in attendance), the event was a testosterone-heavy helping of benevolence — all in the name of “being a man.”

From learning about dressing, to dining and drinking (dinner courses were paired with Oskar Blues beers), to doing, the full house of guys in attendance took manhood to another level as they supported HHY’s mission to give youth someone to look up to… and support abused, neglected, homeless and troubled children through counseling, advocacy, educational support, workforce readiness, and life skills training.
