#AtHomeWithAvec Challenge

by Apr 10, 2020

We might not be able to come together as a group right now, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still find ways to interact as a community. At Avec, we believe in living life to the fullest; this means continually finding ways to learn, connect, and laugh no matter the circumstance. For this reason, we are inviting all Avec residents to participate in our #AtHomeWithAvec Challenge!

The rules are very simple! All you need to do is join us as we unveil a month’s worth of interactive virtual events. Every Thursday (starting on April 16th at 6:30 PM through May 7th.), we will host a live virtual event for Avec residents to join. 

HOW RESIDENTS PARTICIPATE IN THE #ATHOMEWITHAVEC CHALLENGE

Residents will share a picture/video on their Instagram feed/story of how they interacted with the event mentioning, @Aveconhapts, and using the hashtag, #ATHOMEWITHAVEC.

EVERY WEEK, THE AVEC TEAM WILL SELECT THE BEST POST. THE LUCKY WINNER OF THE WEEK WILL RECEIVE A $50 GIFT CARD TO THEIR FAVORITE H-STREET BUSINESS!

And these aren’t your average events! These virtual events were hand-selected to offer Avec residents an opportunity to learn a wide array of new and fun activities from the comfort of their apartment home.

Here is a full list of live events Avec on H Apartments will be hosting in the coming month:
