The Annual Gala
The Annual Gala
The Washington Center’s Annual Gala is our largest and most important fundraising event. Proceeds are designated to scholarships and help to fund more than two million dollars in financial aid The Washington Center provides to 80 percent of our students annually. In 2012, our Gala raised more than $450,000 to benefit The Washington Center’s scholars and programs.
The Annual Gala celebrates The Washington Center’s partners and our mission. We honor remarkable individuals who have supported our academic internship and seminar programs; who have made it possible for us to bring more than 2,000 college students each year to Washington, D.C.; and whose lives exemplify TWC’s three pillars: professional achievement, leadership, and civic engagement.
More than 450 guests attend this celebratory event which highlights the network of our critical partners. They come from many diverse constituent groups: members of our affiliated universities; some of our more than 50,000 alumni; board members; corporate and foundation sponsors; congressional leaders; and other close friends.
This year, The Washington Center is pleased to present Gala 2013: Global Leaders. Global Leaders unites our present and our future: it encompasses all of our existing activities to create the next generation of leaders in a flat world, and it addresses our ambitions to increase our international programs and footprint.
