On Tuesday, March 8, Done in a Day Committee volunteers promoted the Junior League of Washington’s mission of promoting literacy by serving at the Everybody Wins! annual gala held at the Capitol Hilton.
With a silent auction featuring flights, private tours, dinner with authors, signed sports memorabilia, spa gift cards and other prizes, not to mention a great dinner, everybody truly did win. But the biggest winners of the evening were the thousands of children who will receive mentoring and literacy help through this important organization. JLW was honored to be part of the special evening.
The dinner featured performances and speeches from students who have positively benefited from Everybody Wins!, along with local principals. More than 60,000 local students have been served through the program.
JLW members assisted with registration, helped with the silent auction, served as ushers and aided with clean-up. One Everybody Wins! leader said, “The Junior League is here every year. It’s always different people, but they’re all awesome.”
Thanks Everybody Wins! We think you’re awesome, too.
