Making the Room Come Alive

By Jana Robinson February 4, 2013

There’s no other way to say it: being the event coordinator for the Blue Jeans Ball is the highlight of my year. I love getting the chance to bring together the wonderful people in our community who are dedicated to the work being done by the Capital Area Food Bank and watch them share an evening together.
I have been working on the ball for seven years now, and I know that it mirrors our mission very well: people from all over the DC area join us on a Sunday to celebrate food, togetherness and creativity.
It is low-key and high quality. What’s not to like about eating delicious food from the finest chefs in the region and wearing your jeans? People come back year after year because they know to expect live music, dancing as well as silent and live auctions – truly something for everyone.
People often ask me what type of work goes into planning an event like the 10th Annual Blue Jeans Ball. Well, let’s start with the venue. Once again this year, our event is at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel. Below is a quick peek at the beautiful room and the people involved in getting the whole thing started.
