The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation, in partnership with Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, will host K Street Cocktails, a fundraising reception to benefit the Foundation’s three cornerstone initiatives. Scheduled to take place at Lincoln Restaurant, the invite-only event will feature cocktails, small plates and special appearances by Nationals representatives. Guests will also enjoy a silent auction, including items such as a 2012 team-signed ball, a Bryce Harper-signed bat and a Ceremonial First Pitch at an upcoming Nationals game.
Focusing on children’s health, education and recreation, the Dream Foundation’s three cornerstone programs include:
- The Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy: In partnership with the District of Columbia, the Academy will operate as a year-round youth development program committed to teaching the fundamentals of baseball and softball while providing after-school and summer educational programs for youth in Wards 7 and 8. The Academy is expected to open in 2013.
- The Washington Nationals Pediatric Diabetes Care Complex at Children’s National Medical Center: This world-class facility will provide a multi-disciplinary approach to supporting families of children with diabetes.
- The Neighborhood Initiative: Grants and in-kind donations are among the various resources presented to local non-profit organizations that are dedicated to improving the Southeast/Southwest D.C. neighborhoods surrounding Nationals Park and beyond.
A 501 (c)3 charitable organization, the Dream Foundation is committed to improving the lives of children throughout the Washington Capital Region through community partnerships. For more information on the Dream Foundation or to make a donation, visit nationals.com/dream.
