Annual Gala

6th Annual EWB-DC Gala - March 14, 2020

We appreciate your flexibility and understanding while we navigate the current COVID-19 situation in Washington, DC. The DC Mayor declared a state of emergency and a public health emergency and recommended that all non-essential gatherings be postponed. We care about the safety and health of our community and in line with the Mayor’s recommendation, we are making the tough decision to postpone the gala. If you’ve already purchased a ticket, you will receive information for using your ticket for the rescheduled event once the new date is confirmed. Thank you for your understanding while we navigate this ever-changing scenario with you!
