Capital Ball!

Washington DC The Scene

We went to the third annual Capital Ball Saturday at Mellon Auditorium.

We snapped Capital Ball co-founder Fern Murias with his parents Liz and Fernando Murias, Digital Global Systems CEO and chair of the Greater Washington Sports Alliance, which promotes SneakerBall.

Miss America’s Kara Fenton, who always works with the organization, is bookended by Miss DC Teresa Davis and Miss Maryland Jade Kenny. The Ball benefited Intsikelelo, which was founded by Chris and Nick Grava to help orphaned, HIV infected, homeless and abused children in South Africa, by making foster homes and childcare organizations sustainable.

The Capital Ball provides a setting for young professionals to network and support their community. Here, co-founder Conor Delany with Deutsche Bank’s Patrick Healy and Coyote Logistics’ Mills Rendell.

Guests enjoyed a full open bar, light hors d'oeuvres by Sweetgreen and Le Pain Quotidien, and music by The Music City Toppers. Here, Stonehill College’s Hannah Feeley and Georgetown University field hockey player Meghan Murphy.

Morgan Stanley Wealth Management’s Corbin Blackwell, Phillips Realty Capital’s Laurie Peltola, The Home Depot’s Anne White and political consultant Maddie Claire.
