A Night at Nats Park!
We went to Nats Stadium to see the Nationals vs. Pirates game, hosted by the Women in Wishes Leadership Council to benefit Make-A-Wish.
It raised over $7,500, which will be used to grant a future wish for a child. We snapped attorney Carl Bedell, Women's Leadership Council’s LaRhonda Burley, LuLuLemon’s Maggie Johnson, CharityBuzz’s Laura Deming, Make-A-Wish’s Becca Werner, and Marriott International’s Stacy Bergin.
Hyped fans cheered for a close game ending with the Nats beating the Pirates 5-4. Here, StonebridgeCarras’ Marvin Pool, Christopher Smith, Kent Marquee, Drew Berlinski, and Charles See.
After the game, Make-A-Wish supporters headed to Cantina Marina to celebrate the Nats’ victory and raise more money for the cause. Here, Dr. Tseday Mekbib, Doyle Barlow’s Camelia Mazard, Targeted Victory’s Sarah Shriver, Fujimar and Lima’s Gina Dakkouni, Republic National’s Jessica Gibson, and VM Public Relations’ Victoria Michael.
Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic grants nearly one wish a day. On the field, Ellie Whitfield, a five-year-old from Annandale, was granted her wish to go to Disney World with her family. She’s with her parents Jennica and Dave and siblings Logan and Adeline.
