  • We have all had to make big and small sacrifices over the last 14 months as we prioritized the health and safety of ourselves and loved ones, which means we now can begin planning for those big or small milestone celebrations, family gatherings, outings, weddings, graduations, dinner dates, parties and gatherings, so many of which had to be postponed.  
  • Five lucky Grand Prize winners will receive $25,000 to host an event, wedding, birthday, graduation or other special event utilizing any DC-based venues, businesses, or service providers.
