Ballers to Descend on Marriott Wardman

By Chris von Spiegelfeld April 11, 2014

dancingSleepy Woodley Park will soon get a jolt this Sunday night as ballers come out of the woodwork to support hunger relief in the Washington metro area.
The 11th Annual Blue Jeans Ball kicks off at 6:00 PM Sunday, combining the best in food, drink, atmosphere, and of course, denim fashion.
Though jean is preferred over tux, this event is no homage to slacker apparel. Au contraire, DC fashionistas will undoubtedly show off some of the most top-of-the-line dungarees around.
That isn’t to say mom or dad jeans aren’t welcomed. This author will sport some of the best kid wranglers in circulation. And that might be an advantageous fit, given all the activities in store.
Restaurants, preparing their signature hors d’oeuvres, are stationed by region to reflect the Capital Area Food Bank’s service area. Attendees will have to shake a leg on the restaurant floor, as well as the dance floor, to partake in all the food and libations served at 40 stations.
In addition, those in the bidding spirit are likely to put their egos on the line as they bid on travel packages, sports memorabilia and other items in the live and silent auctions.
Tickets for Blue Jeans Ball are no longer available online. However, walk up tickets will be available Sunday night for standing room only.
