Tech Cocktail CEO Frank Gruber presented the group’s 2014 DC All-Stars Awards. Winners were chosen by peers in the tech community. Disruption Corporation/Crystal Tech Fund Founder Paul Singh was voted Most Charismatic Leader, 1776 won Most Active in the Local Community and Sweetgreen was named Best Community Leader. See the entire list of winners here.

Guests received copies of Gruber’s new book, Startup Mixology, sipped on speciality cocktails and toured Disruption’s sprawling office, which has doubled in size since Singh moved his portfolio of young tech companies into the then-13,000-square-foot space in April.

In the spirit of the season, partygoers brought canned food for AFAC (Arlington Food Assistance Center).  The non-profit has been helping Arlington families in need put nutritious food on their tables for over 25 years.
