Danny Douglas saw the weather forecast. The D.C. area was going to get hit with a snowstorm, and Danny thought a snowball fight would be a great way to raise money for a charity. Stephanie Holland, a friend who says that "Research Down Syndrome will always be true to my heart", suggested RDS as the cause. Quickly, Danny organized the Battle @ Ballston, posted the event on social media, and encouraged D.C. area residents to come armed and ready to fight it out in support of RDS. Hundreds joined the event on Monday, March 3. Afterwards, many of the snowball fighters headed to event sponsor Wilson Tavern. The next day, RDS received a kind donation from the proceeds. Thank you Danny, Stephanie and Wilson Tavern.
