40th Anniversary Gala Celebration

Date October 6, 2019

Please join us on Sunday, October 6 from 5:30 – 9 PM at the Marriott Marquis as we commemorate our 40th year serving the Washington metropolitan region!

To kick off the start of this remarkable year and a new strategic direction, we’re bringing together an amazing group of our region’s leaders and visionaries for a night of music, food, fun, and impact – and it won’t be complete without you.

The 40th Anniversary Gala will feature familiar favorites from the Blue Jeans Ball, our gala from years past that’s consistently ranked as one of the area’s premier charity events by the Washingtonian, BizBash, and others. Food samples from top eateries across the region, a chance to mingle and connect with 600+ of your closest friends, live and silent auctions, and a denim dress code that won’t tie you up in knots are all among the highlights of the evening.

Enjoy bites and sips from 40 outstanding local restaurants, including Maketto, Granville Moore’s, Toki Underground, Fourth Estate, Pinch and many more, while hearing the inspirations and history behind each dish.
