Capital City Ball!
Saturday night we went to The Capital City Ball at Georgetown’s City Tavern Club.
The eighth annual black tie gala raised money to fight human trafficking and modern-day slavery. We snapped Washington Life’s John Arundel, actor Vincent De Paul, Capital City Ball executive committee member Michelle McDonald and casting director Kimberly Skyrme.
The Ball featured a luxurious reception with hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and an open bar. Here, TAP LLC’s Theo Abbott, Blessed Haven’s Danielle Jennings and Capital City Ball co-founder John Dunford.
The silent auction included artwork, sports tickets, handcrafted objects, collectibles and dinners at great local restaurants. There was live music by Bittersweet, an 11-piece, high-energy dance band, and lots of unabashed dancing. Here, business consultant Olga Tregubova, SEC’s Matthew Christiansen and Genau Group Realty’s Melissa Wilson.
Proceeds go to various charities that fight human trafficking and modern-day slavery, which exists everywhere, even in DC where it nets over $100 million a year. Here, G W Law School’s Mary Beth Hasty, Capital City Ball’s Edwina Callus and AMT Engineering’s Sina Taghizadehmoghadam.
