20th Annual Army Distaff Foundation Gala
On Wednesday, Oct. 28, the Army Distaff Foundation will hold its most important fundraiser of the year - the Annual Gala - to raise money that will allow us to continue to fulfill our mission of providing safe, dignified and compassionate care for uniformed services officers and their families who may face financial hardship in their retirement years.
This year, we celebrate an anniversary event, the 20th Annual Gala, with The Boeing Company as our major corporate sponsor, and the company’s newly appointed President and CEO, Dennis A. Muilenburg, as our Dwight D. and Mamie Eisenhower Distinguished Citizen Award honoree. Joining Boeing will be our Congressional honoree, Senator Roy Blunt of Missouri. All previous Eisenhower honorees have also been invited to attend the Gala hosted by ADF Board Chairman GEN Jack Keane, and we hope to see individuals like Senator John McCain, Phebe Novakovic, Senator John Reed and many others at this festive celebration
The event will be held off-site for the first time due to ongoing construction in the dining room. Starting at 6 p.m., attendees will enjoy a cocktail reception at the Fairmont Hotel in Georgetown, in Washington, D.C.'s West End followed by a three course dinner made from all locally sourced, small farm-raised ingredients.
Free transportation to the Fairmont Hotel will be provided for residents. Attendees will board touring coaches at 4:45 p.m. at the front entrance and will be driven to the Fairmont. Coaches will return residents after the dinner
