DBCR Junior Board Gala!
We went to the DBCR Junior Board Gala at the Atrium of Bobby Van’s Grill. We snapped Hardwood Federation's Cary Moon with gala co-chair Courtney Joseph, who works at the US House of Representatives, Office of the Speaker's Seton Gardner and Alpine Group's Reed Cook.
The gala was a fundraiser for Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School and the Corporate Work Study Program, which offers a comprehensive college prep education to students who come from predominately low-income, minority families. Most Don Bosco Cristo Rey students will be the first in their families to attend college. Here, Cushman & Wakefield's Liz Cumberpatch and T. Rowe Price's Abby Groom flank gala co-chair Chris Hodgson, who works at the Office of the Majority Whip.
Guests enjoyed an open bar, dancing, raffle prizes and treats as well as the after-party at Hawthorne DC. Here, Cornerstone's Madeleine Diakiwski, Office of the Speaker's Seton Gardner, Don Bosco Cristo Rey president Rev. Mike Conway, RNC's Ramsey Ratcliffe, who is a gala co-chair, and Cornerstone's Suzanne Batista.
The Don Bosco Cristo Rey Junior Board is a group of young professionals devoted to raising awareness about Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School through fundraising events, volunteer opportunities and social activities. Here, Howard Law School's Megan Melbourne and The Webster Group's Alex Flemming.
