Hello!
We are 5 weeks away from our largest fundraising event of the year, the Everybody Wins DC 24th Annual Gala . Join us Wednesday, April 3 from 5:30 - 9PM at the National Museum of Women in the Arts  as we celebrate 24 years of shared reading with a magical evening of auctions, awards, dinner, and live entertainment to support our work across elementary schools in the DC metropolitan area.

This year, we are bringing themed gift baskets back to the auction! All Reading Mentors are invited to support the Gala by contributing items for the gift baskets, which will be featured in the silent auction. 

Check out the variety of themes for our baskets then bring your contribution to Power Lunch and give it to your school coordinator. You can help fill your school’s basket and/or contribute items that align with other themes as well. Remember to fill out a donation form

If you would like to donate other, larger items to the silent auction, become a Gala sponsor, or have any questions about the Gala, contact Holland Diz at hdiz@everybodywinsdc.org

Tickets to the gala are FREE . At registration, we do encourage you to make a donation to help instill the love of reading to students in our community.
