CHV Gala 2014 Auction

Salon Dinners and Events

As always, we have a great roster for our ever-popular Salon Dinners, where guests pay a set price for a special meal or event. Salon events cost $75 or $100 each except for the John Lewis dinner which will cost $150 each—designated for the Rogers Fund for the John Lewis dinner. All but $25 may be tax deductible.

Dine with Civil Rights legend Congressman John Lewis while discussing what it takes to create and maintain a “beloved community” on the Hill and in Washington, DC. Join the Director of DC Planning Harriet Tregoning, who will talk about her work to make DC a leading example of Smart Growth in the U.S. Spend an evening with former vice chair of the Federal Reserve Donald Kohn learning what the Fed "really" does, or enjoy a paleo pizza party with Smithsonian archaeologist Dennis Stanford as he walks us through his theory of how the first humans to inhabit North America arrived here.

Like theater? Nancy Robinette is back by popular demand to share wonderful stories about the theater. Joe and Doriann Fengler will offer a spectacular Arabian Nights Belly Dancing and Cocktail Hour showcasing local performers. Luncheon with actors Tim Getman and Gabriela Fernandez-Coffey, while they discuss their experiences in the Washington theater scene.

Gail Kohn former executive director of CHV and the current director of D.C.’s age-friendly city program, and Howard Gleckman, who edits TaxVox the closely-followed economic policy blog of the Office of Tax Policy will join forces to discuss Successful Aging in the 21st Century. Dr. Zeba Geeloo Medical Director at Medstar Washington Primary Care Physicians, and Dr. Ed Miller, President of the 70-physician Medstar Physician Partners, will discuss the importance of primary care physicians. Lynn Ringenberg, an educational psychologist and reading specialist will share how anyone—a parent, grandparent, tutor—can help a child become a lifelong reader. And there are even more intriguing choices.
