Luncheon for the Mall!
Yesterday we headed to the National Mall for the seventh annual Trust for the National Mall luncheon.
The annual luncheon hosted over 1,000 supporters of the National Mall and has become a major springtime event for politicos and the DC business community. We snapped Trust supporter Diana Kogan with former Undersecretary of State Jim Glassman and his wife Beth, who’s on the Women's Committee.
