Not Your Ordinary Fundraiser

By Dylan Menguy February 4, 2014

Set aside your suits and ball gowns and get ready for one of the region’s top fundraisers— the Capital Area Food Bank’s 11th Annual Blue Jeans Ball. With all the galas happening throughout the Washington metro area, the Blue Jeans Ball is the only event where guests can relax in their fashionable denim, enjoy tastings from over 30 of the area’s top restaurants, partake in live and silent auctions and dance the night away.restaurants-at-bjb

On Sunday, April 13, nearly 1,000 guests will fill the grand ballroom at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel for a great time and more importantly, to help feed nearly 700,000 residents struggling with hunger right here in our region.

Now in its 11th year, the Blue Jeans Ball is the CAFB’s most important annual fundraiser. Since 2003, the event has raised $2 million, which has helped provide 37 million meals annually to local children, seniors and families in need.

This event would not be possible without the generous support of community partners, including restaurants, sponsors and auction donors. Click here to access a complete list of this year’s contributors.

So put away your suits and ball gowns, get out your best denim and join us for the best Blue Jeans Ball ever! Click here to make your reservation today for this historically sold-out event.
